Volunteering is a two way street

Good Neighbours, located in Newcastle, is one of the international projects run by the Assumption Order. Similar to the Living & Learning project it supports young people and provides volunteer placements. Gabriel who lives in Vitoria,  Brazil, will join the project in September:

“Yes the image is too serious! This picture is the only one I have at my computer.

Well I like to read, chatting with friends on the internet, have a walk, etc. Actually there’s a lot of films and music that I like, I can’t say I have a favourite one.

I love football ! I support Flamenco, a team from Rio de Janeiro but my passion is European football.

I really like to hang out with friends, I usually do it a lot here.

The person who inspires me is not a famous person. I would say it’s my mother. She inspires me on everything. I learn a lot of things with her.

I want to go to England because I think that would be a good experience for me, like learning another type of culture and sure to improve my English which is not so good. Of course I’m interested about the children at the project, I already worked with children here and I loved it. I think I can bring a lot of good things to the children and I am hoping to teach and learn with them.”
