Eco Caminhos takes volunteering very serious as we believe it is an incredible opportunity to share knowledge, experiences, friendships. Volunteers bring new knowledge and hopefully take a great ideas when they leave to improve our planet just a little bit. We have over 8 years of experience working with volunteers. To make volunteering accesible for everyone we have organized 4 types of volunteer in Brazil programmes:
