In Brazil we celebrate Teacher Appreciation Day every October 15th and this year was very special at Caminhos, as we had a day full of fun.
Nick's mom is Brazilian and he has lots of Brazilian relatives. Because of that he's been visiting Rio de Janeiro since he was born.
A volunteer of Mais Caminhos spent a few weeks in Rio de Janeiro teaching English to underprivileged teens in the nearby favela and learned a lot from this experience.
The Positive Discipline is opposed to traditional punishment, and it aims to educate kids through a caring, loving and supportive environment.
Imagine you are a kid living in Rio's favelas. You don't have the same access to basic need, such as transportation and education, than other people living in most privileged neighborhoods.
