Brazil - At a Glance

A land of plenty, from the abundance of incredible coastline and rainforest to the huge cities and populous beaches. The country has some of the most iconic sights in the world, from rhythmic Rio to the deepest Amazon jungle. You can make your trip meaningful by building a house in Rio for a needy family who cannot afford a decent place to live. If you have business or accounting skills, you can use these to help micro-loan recipients better provide for their families. You will gain insights into the lives of Brazilian people, hearing their stories, and sharing laughs…and tears.
