About the author

In 2010, driven by the desire to create value, a group of friends flew to the Principe island in Sao Tome and Principe. There they discovered a different reality, where happiness and smiles reigned, but where there were no dreams of a different future, or of an alternative to existing reality.

Books to read, teachers to teach, libraries to study, training in the most diverse areas. At Principe, there was and still much to do for education. Sonha, Faz e Acontece wants to actively participate in this urgent change.

To educate is to take care of the future! Thus, in April 2012, Sonha, Faz e Acontece , a voluntary and social entrepreneurship association, was born. Its "dream" is to create a level playing field for PALOP youth to succeed and become agents of change in their communities.

We have been present on the ground for 7 years with activities of great impact such as the Xináa Fogáá Summer Camp which covers over 100 children; the Entrepreneurship Competition that supports and finances local businesses; and the rehabilitation of school infrastructures. Now is the time to take our dream further and implement Sonha, Faz e Acontece first long-term project with the Principezinhos Project.

It is education that is spoken. Education is synonymous with freedom. Education is “the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world,” Nelson Mandela.
