    Description:

    The Favela Experience gives you an intriguing look into the everyday lives of the favela-dwelling Brazilian in Rio. Families, schools, businesses and restaurants are all crammed onto hillsides where over 950 favelas in Rio have taken over land that was once public property, housing about 20% of the city's population.

    Visit a local school to understand the educational situation local children experience in the favelas. If you feel so inclined, you may make a donation to aid in the development of the school's educational programs. These areas are commonly related with extreme levels of poverty, but despite residents' difficult living conditions, they maintain a open attitude and are happy to educate visitors on what life is really like in the favelas. To really get a true feel for the real Brazilian society, a tour through the favelas is a must!
