"... and definitely one without a sketchy record."

Better look out of the country then.

Come on Marcio, how about a little optimism!


I went on a great tour of Rocinha, with a local who supports a nonprofit called 2Bros Foundation - got to see foreign volunteers teaching dance, helping with HW etc, he also took us to see a place called the Oficina do Tio Lino, that provides a place for kids to go after school to work on art projects, but is lacking in supplies. Both in Rocinha, his website is http://www.faveladodarocinha.com/2bros.html


2 Brothers is a good organization in Rocinha, but Rocinha is so high-profile and gets so much attention, it may be better to look to a smaller and more needy community.

I know one of the founders of 2bros, he's an old coplleague of mine and the NGO is very good.

Tenho tambem contatos nessas NGOs se vc quiser.

Um abraço,
