What is Community in Action?

Since 2004, Community in Action has been implementing community development programs in favelas throughout Rio de Janeiro, collaborating with a diverse network of local organizations. We are a platform that unites people from around the world with grassroots initiatives in Rio’s most marginalized regions, focusing on: education, job training, women’s empowerment, youth programming, the environment, and manual labor support. We have hosted thousands of volunteers over the years and implemented hundreds of social outreach projects.
