My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Abrace Inc - Brazilian Association of Culture and Education, McLean, VA, USA
ABRACE has made possible for me and my family, especially my children, to stay connected and in direct contact with our heritage, language, and culture. It provides an opportunity for the Brazilian community to gather and work towards the same goal which is to maintain the Brazilian language and culture alive in the lives of children and teenagers living outside Brazil. At the same time, it provides an opportunity for families to socialize and interact. Some of my best friends I found through ABRACE. It is also worthwhile mentioning that ABRACE serves an important role in connecting the community with the local Brazilian Embassy and Consulate, often offering programs in partnership with them such as sessions (usually speeches or talks) on a variety of topics that are of interest to the Brazilian community living in the greater DC area.
