volunteer work in Rio

I am living in RJD for 6 months doing consulting work in publishing. I am interested in using my free time constructively and want to do some community development/social justice work. Any suggestions for how to find a place to volunteer my time? I am learning Portuguese now and have time both on weekends and weekdays. Any contacts or names of organizations would be greatly appreciated.

Good for you. The American Society of Rio, on whose board I sit, is a service/charity organization founded in 1917. If you contact the office and ask to be put in contact with the Community Relations liaison (Brenda) you can quickly become inculcated in re social programs you can work on and then some.
