Brazil Campo Largo

Out of the slum and into a home

We continue our work in Campo Largo with our long-standing partner, Open Hands, building transitional homes for families living in the favelas. Help to give the gift of a home away from the slum where children can have better access to education and families can feel safe.

The Projects

The Open Hands project that our Brazil 2018 team will be visiting with socially-excluded families living in extreme poverty in the favelas – help them make the first step of building a transitional home with better access to education, healthcare and work.

You'll also visit other community-led projects, such as Lar Feliz – A home for vulnerable children that aims to keep siblings together and CEIFAR- a men’s residential addiction treatment centre.

Rest and Relaxation

For some down-time, you’ll visit Cananeia: Take a boat trip through the world-famous mangroves and witness some incredible wildlife. Walk through the Atlantic Forest to a beautiful waterfall and swim in the natural pool, before venturing on to beautiful beaches.
