Cariocafreeculture is hoping to provide a network for volunteers, Rio residents, any ol’ traveler like yourself- to come up with ideas for social projects within Rocinha and Vidigal and make them possible through our resources and contacts. If you have an idea, please send it our way and lets make it happen together!
