Expeditions

Imagine how you could change lives, including your own.

The MORE Project has numerous specialized programs whose overall aim is to provide critical care and support for some of Brazil’s most overlooked, impoverished children, adults, and families of a favela [slum] located outside Rio de Janeiro. Virtually every person who completes a volunteer expedition returns with a life changing story to tell; more important than having such a meaningful experience in your own life, your volunteer expedition will have an immeasurable impact on the lives of those we serve in Brazil.

2014 Expedition Dates

MORE Project Brazil April 6-13, 2014

General Expedition

Michele in Brazil

This trip will be a general expedition. The purpose behind this expedition is to familiarize the participant with a typical day in the life of someone living in a favela in Brazil. We will visit all of our programs and you will get to meet all of the children who go to school there. You will eat lunch with them, read to them, share special moments as you learn what their lives are like. We will also be working on a service project as a group. One day will be spent in Rio de Janeiro seeing the sites and visiting a few of the beaches. Your life will be forever changed as you grow to know and understand the daily challenges that exist for the people we serve, and as you hear their stories of change that has come about through their involvement with The MORE Project.
