This amazing project’s aim is to help those who are actively seeking to help themselves escape their life of poverty.

It serves a real need by offering free care for children in a nurturing and safe environment while their parents work or study to create a better life for their families. Complexo do Alemão favela has an exceptionally high rate of young mothers, and this program offers these young women the chance to finish their education and ultimately offer their children a more stable upbringing. In other families it allows both parents to join the workforce and receive the benefits of two incomes providing for their family.  

The program places caring international volunteers in the unique position of working directly with children and their families to tangibly help them achieve their goals. By earning more money and achieving higher education, residents of the Complexo do Alemão favela can give their children a safer life.

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide free child care for children under five years old to the families of Complexo do Alemão favela – one of Rio’s largest shanty towns
  • Improve the future prospects of families by allowing parents to work or study to provide a better future for their families and break the poverty cycle
  • Supply a quality, caring programme to the city’s poorest children, creating a solid foundation for their future education and wellbeing
  • Supply basic needs to the most disadvantaged children in society to help them lead safer, healthier lives

Start Dates

This project is available year-round and programs start every SUNDAY. Volunteers can choose to participate for periods ranging from 1 week to 12 weeks. Longer stays can be arranged directly with the local team, but will be subject to availability and individual visa conditions. Spaces on this project are limited and therefore subject to availability. Early booking is recommended.


Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to assist in the development of Brazil's next generation. While this highly rewarding project does not require participants to have a background in the field of childcare, as there are many ways you can assist, volunteers with suitable education, qualifications or experience are highly sought after. Regardless, a volunteer’s individual role can often be tailored to suit their particular skills and interests. Volunteers on this project will need an understanding of Spanish in order to communicate effectively with the children and local staff members. All applicants must of course display a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!

Additionally, volunteers applying to join this program will be required to supply to following documentation:
- Emergency contact
- Police check
