Volunteering experience with IFRE in Rio02/10/2013How could this program be improved?
I would ensure volunteers speak at least basic portuguese, or encourage them to learn a bit before they come out here.
Some volunteers will not take the intiative of learning the language themselves beforehand, I think it should be highlighted to them in an obvious way the importance of doing so.
