CAREoke is an activity where international students are invited to donate items for one of the city's charity institutions. The goal of this edition was to gather items such as long-lasting food, school supplies or hygiene items to donate to Colégio de São Caetano, an institution that accomodates and supports children and young people in danger, ensuring their basic needs are taken care of (such as their education and well-being).
As soon as the participants arrived, they were encouraged to leave the items they intended to donate with ESN volunteers. Afterwards, they would sign up to sing and have fun with their friends.
This edition of CAREoke was a success and had a tremendous impact on both the participants and the institution which we donated the items to. Not only were the participants engaged in the activity itself, they also managed to donate a considerate amount of items (mainly food and hygiene items) that were later donated by our volunteers to Colégio de São Caetano.
