Favela Experience is a for-profit social enterprise that provides culturally immersive homestays, private apartment rentals, hostel stays and tour activities to travelers, students and volunteers in favelas, Brazil’s most fascinating urban communities. Our guests gain exciting and meaningful travel experiences, bringing sustainable economic development to low-income favela residents, non-profits and favela based businesses, while improving the world’s perception of favelas. We help to facilitate communication and collaboration and to diminish the barrier that can sometimes make it difficult for non-favela organizations to connect with locals in order to develop innovative and impactful ideas, projects, products and services. We also seek to connect international communities facing similar socio-economic issues to find common ways to develop inter-community dialogue and collaboration to solve commonly faced problems and barriers to growth.
