Mais Caminhos aims to provide educational opportunities and life-skills development to children and adolescents in orphanages. The volunteering program is totally free and volunteers receive free accommodation, food and job-related training. Volunteers are given freedom to create and develop their own projects, and there are numerous areas to work in such as agriculture, social media, social development, web design, education, cooking, driving, and as a coordinator. Whatever your skills or background, this organisation will find some use for them. The minimum commitment is six months with an intermediate level of Portuguese required. Those that commit for one year can start with little to no Portuguese and will receive a month-long course at their language school for free.
