Overview
We believe that all transformation involves enlarging the narratives, about the power to narrate and what we can narrate. We are a native team of teachers and educators of the Museum of Memory and History of Rocinha, born and raised in the favela. Our translators are locals; our guides are residents and we train our future guides teachers - youth team, students, who narrate their history, train another language and form aware of the memory and local history. We have the dream of building our school. Want to know more and transform the local reality? Take a historical-educational tour with us, get to know and change culture, experience the real seasoning of local life and sponsor our project.

Thank you! we seek to impact the local economy by working with translators / residents born and raised in Rocinha. In this way the resident, and not only the visitor, has access to local history and ends up contributing with his experience and enriching the itinerary of the historical Rocinha. Come back more often.
