The tour seeks to bring you into the root of the Favela community, to provide you with an insight into the vibrant spirit of its people, to allow you to interact freely with the local population. You will be in a group of seven where a local will take you on his moto taxi from the edge of the Favelas up to the brim of its basin, overlooking the city. An hours walk, will take you through the heartbeat of this unique community. Meeting and greeting the locals on your way through the winding streets, listening to the urban and salsa beats, taking in the organic smells of local family animals and local dishes.
Besides having contact with the locals, we visit an art studio and two local schools. The art studio is called the 'Culture Project' (Casa de Cultura). Its aim is to bring you into the world of local artists creating works which represent the local spirit, history and culture.
Following on from this is the Daycare Centre. This is an initiative where local and multinational companies have joined forces to provide a place for the education and development of the young population of the Favelas. These adorable children are guaranteed to greet you with open arms. We are proud to say that we are one of the financial contributors towards this initiative. Volunteers are always needed to continue to provide this vital service to the local community this could be your perfect.
