I’m posting this mainly to get some translation help from my Brazilian friends. Last winter I worked for a while at an orphanage on a remote mountain in Brazil (down the dirt road from the Buddhist temple where I also stayed).
I was particularly impressed with Leo and Vanderson, two staffers at the orphanage, so I wanted to find out why they chose to dedicate their lives to working with kids. They both live full-time at the orphanage. In addition to taking care of the daily needs of the almost 60 kids, Leo teaches music, and Vanderson teaches capoeira.
They talked to me about why they chose to do what they do. Once I get an English transcript, I’ll add it to this post.
So, my Brazilian friends, por favor me ajudem.
