With all of our free activities and social projects Caminhos is the place to be to study Portuguese in Brazil. Meet new people and experience Brazilian culture.

Supporting Children in Brazil

Caminhos was founded in 2009 with the objective of supporting underprivileged children in Brazil. The Portuguese school has offered a wide range of support services and activities ever since. For six years the Casa do Caminho orphanage was financially supported by the school.  Caminhos invested in cultural and vocational education for the children and teenagers. Since 2014 the language school has its own social programme called ‘Mais Caminhos’. A former resident of the orphanage, ‘Davi’, is now employed by Caminhos as a tour guide in Rio de Janeiro.
