Brazil

Overview
Ready for the adventure of a lifetime? 

What if you could chart a boat through the Amazon and serve the local peoples in the many villages along the great river? On this trip, you can do exactly that, all while getting to work shoulder-to-shoulder with Brazilian university students who will be your translators, guides, and new best friends. 

After that, you'll serve in the outskirts of Rio de Janiero, where over 20% of the city's population are still trapped in poverty and inhabiting urban slums, called favelas. Work with us as we strive to bring better infrastructure and quality of living- but, above all, strive to bring light to a place of desperation.

Fundraising

  1. Each FOCUS Missions participant has the opportunity to fundraise the entire cost of their mission trip. Consider that fundraising allows people who may not have the opportunity to travel on a mission trip to participate in this essential work through you. In another sense, “some give by going, while others go by giving.” Allowing others to support us through their financial commitments and prayers is essential to the success of FOCUS Missions!
  2. After you have been accepted on a mission trip, you will be contacted by your personal fundraising coach who will train and mentor you along the way.
  3. Please feel free to contact us at any time by phone or email with your fundraising questions.
