Ambassadors of Joy

March 17, 2024

Coming back to Rio de Janeiro the week after carnival I arrived just in time to be introduced to the Embaixadores da Alegria - the Ambassadors of Joy - who campaign for the inclusion of disabled people in the world's biggest carnival. To gain more visibility they were invited to open the Desfile das Campeãs, the Champion's Parade of the six best samba schools. The parade took place the Saturday after Carnival. And what a joy it was to meet these amazing people, and to be invited to follow them on their parade through the Sapucaí.
