I will be temporarily living in Salvador da Bahia and I'm looking to do volunteer work for an NGO in Salvador. I will also be polishing my portuguese and want to take portuguese lessons in Salvador. I also want to learn more about the Afro-Brazilian culture while I'm there and would like to get involved some way with the community.
Does anybody have any knowledge of Salvador regarding the above activities? I would also like to know the best way to find lodging (not a hotel), perhaps renting an apartment for aproximately 6 to 8 months. Any help/info. would be highly appreciated.

Contact Joseph Santini (Brasilian) of Santini Tours and Travel. He will be back in Berkeley, Califorina after the World Cup he is attending. He also has good air fares to Salvador and has a lodge there that might interest you, especially since it is one block from the beach at the famous Farol de Salvador. call him at 1-800-769-9669.

I actually just came from a 2 week stay in Salvador da Bahia at a language school called "Diálogo". They have a pretty decent teaching setup and also have courses on Bahian Cuisine and Capoeira lessons, but you can find other schools for those things easily in Bahia. Their web site is www.dialogo-brazilstudy.com

Also, depending on how long you are staying, you can find places like Barra Farol Flats which is basically an extended stay hotel that's pretty nice. A couple of the students I met there were staying there for about 800.00 reais/mo. for 3 or 4 months and they had their rooms cleaned and beds made for them.

But yeah, those are some more options for you!

Jay an Big Mike,
Thanks a lot for your suggestions and comments. I'll call Joseph after the World Cup.
I checked out Dialogo's website and it looks like a great school, thanks for the recommendation.
Any other tips/suggestions are more than welcomed.
