Opening our door is the beginning of the Brazilian warmth that turns strangers into friends. Everyone is equally welcome, whether for a night, for a week or for the duration of a project. Whether alone, as a couple or with the family. Rioca is a place where life feels easy. In your apartment you can cook to your heart’s content, feel at home, and find deep, restful sleep.
Children need a future
Initiatives such as the Padre Dr. Francisco da Motta Port School in Rio give children from the surrounding favelas a secure future. Thanks to education, care and nutrition, more than 1,000 students are given the chance to escape the vicious cycle of poverty, thus offering a real prospective for the future.
But the government’s money is not enough to ensure the school’s survival. What is needed is the commitment of companies. With i Live, we have been committed to the port school for many years. And thus for a better future for the children of Rio de Janeiro.
The German priest Father Eckart led the school for 27 years.
Support begins as early as kindergarten age.
The steadily growing school has been active since 1897.
Students from four to 19 years old attend the Harbor School.

Commitment for the rainforest
With our sponsoring association, the i Live Help Alliance, we are committed to protecting the Brazilian rainforest. The images of the forest fires in the Brazilian Amazon deeply moved us in 2019. That’s why we don’t just want to get involved socially, we want to expand our commitment and become active for nature conservation on site. Together with local partners, we are in talks to set up a project with which we will not only plant millions of trees over the next few years, but also develop a training center for the local population. In this way, we want to make a sustainable and long-term contribution to the protection of the Brazilian Amazon.
