fREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Loved learning more about the history of Olodum and Afro-Brazilian culture. The vision of this school and their future plans were incredible to witness from the group of volunteers in the community running it. As it was during the holidays, we helped prepare gift bags for the children who arrived later for an end of year award ceremony.
I highly recommend this PI activity and looking forward to seeing the growth of the school and all that they provide for the community.
