Brazil Green Building Volunteer Adventure

THE STORY:

Canadian companies Eco-librium Sustainable Adventures and Construct and Conserve have joined forces once again to help provide a sustainable development project that will help change the lives of hundreds of children.
This year we will be designing and building composting toilets for the Quilombo community. These will be used for both the tourists who visit the project and for children and staff living at the community. The type of toilets that will be built will improve sanitation, waste management, and the toilets will eventually produce a rich soil that will then be used in a reforestation project. The volunteer team will also be building cement and iron rainwater holders that will provide drinking water, and water for washing.
Construct and Conserve will be leading the teams of volunteer builders and Quilombo adolescents in this green building initiative. We hope to provide practical skills for the children so they can sustainably build future projects for the community.
As part of the cross cultural experience the Quilombo community will be training the volunteers for Carnival. They will be teaching African drumming, capoeira, African dance, and the logistics of belonging to a “block” in Brazilian carnival. After the volunteer project is finished volunteers will then participate in Carnival with the community!
We need to fundraise for building supplies and building tools to leave the Quilombo children. Please help us make this dream come true!
