Students from Tulou Primary School in Pingshan County in Shijiazhuang City, capital of north China's Hebei Province, were introduced to Brazilian culture at a themed activity held by Manos Internacional, a non-governmental educational organization, on September 15, 2012.

Volunteers from the organization introduced Brazilian animals, food, landscapes and football culture to the students. They also held a barbecue and taught the students how to sing traditional Brazilian songs.

The students enjoyed themselves and said that they now have a better understanding of Brazilian culture.

Manos Internacional was founded in 2004 by John Alvarez from the United States and his wife, after they came to China as foreign language teachers.

So far, the organization has carried out educational programs in six local elementary and junior high schools across the city. About 30 foreign volunteers usually help out during their summer vacations to teach the students English or cultural courses.
