GO TO BRAZIL IN DECEMBER! 5 SPOTS LEFT!
By latingipsy ⋅ October 7, 2009 ⋅
Join Aceneth & Service for Peace on an adventure to Brazil and at the same time Spreading the Seeds of Humanity!
The Global PeaceMakers project in Brazil will bring together young people from the United States, Brazil and other countries in the region to build a library in a primary school in Jardim Planalto, a poor community outside the capital city of Brasilia. The community currently does not have access to a library, and many children have illiterate parents. By creating a positive and resourceful learning environment for schoolchildren, this program will ensure a more positive future for the children, the families, and the entire community of Jardim Planalto.
The program will include several visits to cultural and historical sites in and outside of Brasilia in order for volunteers to explore Brazilian culture. Participants will participate in community events and festivals, and really become a part of the Jardim Planalto community.
The program also includes an interactive educational component that will give participants the opportunity to practice their leadership skills, and process their experiences through personal and group reflection.
