You will be staying in the heart of the Amazon, in the Tapajós-Arapiuns Natural Reserve located in Santarém, Pará, Brazil..

The volunteering activities will be focused on soil recovery in the Anumã community through grass planting and native seedling production, which will later be distributed to the community members of the reserve to use in their plantations, generating income and assisting in the recovery of the biome. The actions are based on the needs identified by CEFA, the Active Forest Experimental Center, a project implemented by NGO Projeto Saúde e Alegria.

In order to participants to experience the community's way of live, the itinerary includes the striking aspects of local culture: sleeping in a hammock, traveling by boat through the extensive rivers of the Amazon basin, typical food and traditional cultural activities such as Farinhada (cassava flour manufacturing process) and workshop to learn the traditional stampó, all with the community to guide us and give more authenticity to the experience.
