Synergia Cabo Verde needs your help for the youth community of Porto Novo to grow through Art and Culture!

Synergia Cabo Verde is a project of Youth Association Synergia (Braga) in Cape Verde, on Santo Antão Island.

At the moment we are working at a social project for the Porto Novo district, that aims to help young people of the community develop personal, professional and social skills through Art and Culture, together with the encouragement to volunteerism and non-formal education practises.

Therefore in Porto Novo we have created the Espaço Jovem – a centre where young people have the opportunity to try artistic activities and be part of a group, engage and fill their free time in a creative and useful way, and to build up small projects for the community, among other things.

This centre counts with two separated areas:

  • an indoor workspace, given by the São Jõao Baptista Parish of Porto Novo;
  • an outdoor area, belonging to the Municipality of Porto Novo.

Synergia Cabo Verde is in Santo Antão since September 2017. Since we have arrived here, we established an important partnership with the Municipality of Porto Novo, we found the sites for our workspace, and finally gave life to our Espaço Jovem.

At the moment we can count on the presence of dozens of youngsters that daily join us at our Theatre and Photography courses, or at our artistic workshops (in which we focus on visual arts and recycling), or that just pass by to spend their free time.

Along with offering alternatives for young people’s free time, Synergia Cabo Verde intents to form volunteers and youth leaders, to help in project writing and financial support researching and to promote the establishment of partnerships between local associations, in order to improve networking.

All the work Synergia does is based on volunteering, so we are looking for financial support to guarantee the project’s execution.

With the materials we hope to get through this campaign, besides with the artistic activities we are already doing, we will be able to promote activities related to sports and stimulate the habit of reading among the youngsters.

Also, including more volunteers to help us running the project will allow us to reach even more people from Porto Novo, as well as to create the opportunity of international volunteering for two young Europeans.

With the money collected with this campaign we will be able to:

  • buy sports equipment to be used in the outdoor area
  • rehabilitate the indoor space, making it more comfortable and cosy
  • buy materials for the artistic activities (for the period of at least 1 year)
  • create a reading space inside ‘Espaço Jovem’
  • buy a photographic camera, to be used in Photography classes and also to document all the work done
  • support 1 international volunteer during 4 months

About the author

Synergia Cabo Verde is a result of the will of two young volunteers to take the work they’ve been doing in Associação Juvenil Synergia (Portugal) abroad. The opportunity came in Santo Antão, an island of Cape Verde.

Associação Juvenil Synergia is a nonprofit organization which purpose is to create and conduct cultural, social, educational and recreative activities with and for young people, keeping an active relationship with the entire community.

We are Donatello Del Latte and Melissa Rito, from Italy and Portugal, professionals in the fields of culture, art and non-formal education. Our will to work together has started in 2015, when both of us were Synergia’s volunteers.

Donatello is an Italian creative who has been raised and always worked in the fields of Art and Culture. He has a BA in performative arts acquired at University of Malta (Rome). The concepts of multiculturalism and integration were always a part of his personality: Donatello has lived in many places around the world and learned the importance of non-formal education throughout various European trainings. Since he has joined Synergia, he created and coordinated Urban Art projects, a social lab in the prison of Braga about creative writing and an Urban Artistic and Poetic Festival

Melissa is a professional in Communication and a freelance photographer from Portugal. Being always interested in arts and in diverse learning methods, she works as a cultural promoter in Portugal and abroad. She has a degree in Science of Communication, acquired at NOVA University and a professional photography course.

After traveling Southeast Asia, Melissa went back to Portugal and started to work with Synergia, where she had the opportunity of creating and promoting cultural events as well as writing European projects.

To create and develop social projects is the base of our work, and we blindly believe in the importance of exchanging qualities and sharing experiences and possibilities.

The chance of expanding our skills – together with those of the people surrounding us – is for us a dream that came true with Synergia Cabo Verde.

    Campanha terminada - Mensagem IMPORTANTE do SYnergia Cabo Verde

    Olá a todos!!

    Infelizmente não conseguimos atingir o objetivo da nossa campanha, mas ainda assim conseguimos reunir o valor dos apoios incondicionais - que chegou quase aos 2000euros!

    Muito obrigado a todos os que apoiaram a campanha, em especial aos que o fizeram de forma incondicional :)

    Com o valor angariado será já possível fazer algumas mudanças no projeto aqui em Santo Antão: adquirir alguns equipamentos e materiais para as atividades do projeto, receber 1 voluntário internacional durante 1 mês e guardar algum dinheiro para a compra de mais materiais no futuro - garantindo assim a continuidade do projeto por pelo menos mais 1 ano!!

    Ainda não tivemos tempo de estabelecer prioridades e decidir quais são os equipamentos mais importantes a comprar; vamos também ver se conseguimos angariar algumas coisas gratuitamente e assim poder deixar o dinheiro para a compra de materiais (que acabam rapidamente e são sempre necessários).

    Se quiserem continuar a acompanhar o nosso trabalho, sigam a página facebook https://web.facebook.com/synergiacaboverde/ :)

    INFORMAÇÃO MUITO IMPORTANTE PARA OS APOIOS NÃO INCONDICIONAIS:

    As pessoas que escolheram fazer o apoio NÃO incondicional devem receber o montante doado de volta. No entanto, isto não é automático - o PPL enviou um email a todos a dizer como proceder. Ainda assim, vamos deixar uma breve explicação:

    - o valor doado de forma não incondicional fica no site PPL, disponível para apoiar outras campanhas ou PARA REEMBOLSO - devem seguir as indicações enviadas no email; ou ir ao vosso Perfil - Saldo - Pedir reembolso.

    Caso o apoio Não incondicional não tenha sido intencional e queiram ainda doar-nos esse valor, poderão colocar o seguinte IBAN ao pedir o reembolso:

    PT50 0035 0211 00004476600 12

    E o valor será reembolsado para a minha conta (Melissa Rito), sendo que o irei juntar ao montante total angariado na campanha.

    Para qualquer esclarecimento adicional não hesitem em contatar!! Através do email synergiacaboverde@gmail.com, melissarito@gmail.com ou donatellodellatte@gmail.com.

    Mais uma vez, muito obrigado a todos! O vosso apoio tem sido essencial, e todo o esforço que fizemos não foi em vão por haver pessoas que acreditam em nós e no trabalho que desenvolvemos. Obrigado!!

    Um abraço,

    Melissa e Donatello
