ETIV has a new face

Who wouldn’t want to learn to swim in here?

Our lovely partners at ETIV do Brasil have moved into an amazing new property that offers both our children and volunteers some great opportunities.

There is so much more space including individual and shared apartments for the volunteers. It also includes a beautiful swimming pool that volunteers can use, but that will also serve the community during our SwimTayka programme.

In addition to this their backyard opens up to the Mangrove forest that they are working hard to protect, replant and restore and they are building new classrooms as we type.

It is frustrating that we cannot be there at present but we are so excited for the next project. Keep well and safe guys and thank you ETIV do Brasil ! 🤝


On March 1st our brazil project (ETIV-do-Brazil) moved into their new property that they are calling the “ETIV Complex” or “Sede ETIV” in Portuguese! This offers the volunteers and staff so much more space including individual and shared apartments for their volunteers. It also includes a beautiful swimming pool that volunteers can use, but that will also serve the community during our SwimTayka programming that includes swimming lessons and drowning prevention for local youth. Meanwhile, our backyard opens up to the Mangrove forest that they are working hard to protect, replant and restore. In addition, they have already begun rebuilding our classroom from the materials we brought over from the old property.
