A team of 11 Portuguese volunteers and 4 volunteers from São Tomé will hold the Project Principe 2018, which marks the return of Sonha, Faz e Acontece tothe island for the seventh year in a row.

We dream and make education and sustainable development happen at the African Portuguese-speaking countries.

This is Sonha, Faz e Acontece mission and Project Principe 2018 is another step towards that goal. We are going back to Principe for the seventh year in a row and during three months we will be implementing activities that urge to respond to that community's needs.

We highlight the following activities:

1. Xináa Fogáa (“Learn how to play”) Summer Camp – around 100 children will be taking part of our Summer Boot Camp with leisure and training activities;

2. Gravana workshops - reading clubs, plastic and musical expression workshops and sports activities to develop the team spirit and self-confidence of children from 6 to 12 years of age who did not have the opportunity to participate in the summer camp;

3. Traineeships – promoting short internships for youngsters from 16 up to 18 years old, partnering with companies implemented on the island of Príncipe;

4. Entrepreneurship Competition – conducting mentoring sessions and follow-up business ideas developed by local entrepreneurs and financially supporting to two winning ideas, as well as providing remote monitoring;

5. Gravana University – continuing education in Entrepreneurship, Communication and Personal Development, English and Computer Science aimed at youngsters/young adults from 16 years old onwards.

6. Rehabilitation of the Nova Estrela health post - this post serves the communities of Nova Estrela, Terreiro Velho and Abade and is in need of deep intervention on the roof.

About the author

In 2010, moved by the desire to create value, a group of friends flew to Principe Island in Sao Tome and Principe. There they discovered a different reality, where happiness and smiles prevailed, but dreams of a different future or an alternative reality didn’t exist. Books to read, teachers to teach, libraries to study, training in several areas… in Principe there was – and still is – a lot to do for the education of those children. Sonha, Faz e Acontece wants to actively participate in this urgent need for change. Because to educate is to take care of the future!

That was how, in April 2012, Sonha, Faz e Acontece was born. We area social entrepreneurship and volunteerism association whose dream is to promote education in Portuguese-speaking African Countries (PALOP countries).

We started with Principe Island, our pilot project, but our intention is to expand our activity to other countries where education is still a basic need. Currently, we are focused on two lines of action – one in Portugal, the other in Principe – and all the help and money are necessary in order to achieve the projects we have outlined. It is education that we are speaking about. Education is synonymous with freedom. Education is "the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” – Nelson Mandela.

Budget and due dates

The crowdfunding campaign ends on June, 30th. During the past 9 months, the volunteers organized several fundraising activities. So far, the fundraising amounts to up to 4.000 euros. Our main goal is to raise the remaining amount of money we need to develop all the planned activities through this crowdfunding platform.

This is the fifth time Sonha, Faz e Acontece finances its project through this crowdfunding platform. In 2013, the Project raised the amount needed to rebuild the school in Roça Abade (in Principe Island) and in the next three years it surpassed the initially set target.

If our campaign is fully financed, there are two fees we pay: one of 5% + VAT for the PPL team and other of 2,5% + VAT to cover the payment fees (PayPal, ATM, etc.). In our case, if we raise the 2.500€, we will pay 230,63€ in fees meaning that the net amount we raise will be 2.269,38€.
