Favela Tour Barra do Ceará
About Barra do Ceará & Aloha
Barra do Ceará is the oldest neighborhood of Fortaleza. In this community full of historical importance Aloha helps the local kids to stay far from the dangers of drugs and prostitution. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays they come together in the Aloha-house to enjoy English lessons, surf together and eat a healthy meal.
About the favela tour
In this favela-tour we’ll visit families that live in the Barra. After the visit we’ll go to Aloha where you’ll join the English classes. Then we’ll go to the beach where one of the kids will be your official ‘buddy’. You can choose to sit or walk on the beach while talking with your buddy or you can enter the water on a bodyboard or surfboard while the kids are your teacher! After the beach we’ll be back in the Aloha-house to eat some local food together with the kids. At 17:00 we leave and with normal traffic we’ll be back at 17:30 in Cumbuco.
Barra do Ceará has problems of child prostitution, drug trafficking and robberies. In our experience nothing happens as long as you listen carefully to our coordinators. All you can bring are yourself and the clothes you wear. It is not allowed to take anything of value like money, watches, cellphones, jewelry or even a small bag. A photographer from the project will make pictures that you’ll receive if you choose the Plus Package.
