Calling all GIRLS GONE INTERNATIONAL: girls living, working, studying, staying for an extended period, in Rio de Janeiro! This is a group for girls to want to meet other girls, on a regular basis, in their new home Rio de Janeiro! This is a great way to meet and make new friends, and make the transition into their new city easy!

Each city has it own Community Manager. The girls that come to our events are English speaking and internationally minded who want to meet like-minded friends, gain a foothold in their new city or build a strong network. Alternatively they have just come home from being abroad and want to keep in with an international circle.

In addition to our main monthly event the Community Manager will organise other events that you will love. And if you have any ideas to help build the community just give her a shout.

If you are interested in being part of the team or contributing to our Online Magazine and Website written by girls gone international for girls gone international, published via multiple channels all over the world and launching in 2013 please let us know!

Happy international living,

The GGI Team
