To raise money for the transport of clothes, personal hygiene goods, and materials to support children's creativity to the Island of Santiago in Cape Verde.

Dja bu fazi alguem ri odje? It's a way of life. Not a project, but a life motto. Consists, whenever possible, of bringing, for Cape Verde, essential goods to life.

'Have you made anyone smile today?' Is a motto that we all have to keep in mind, in our day-to-day life, in our actions, because only this way we live in harmony with us and with others.

This idea came after a stay in Cape Verde to volunteer. The coexistence, the sharing of moments and ideas, the goodness of the people, wanting to help with what little they have,made me realize that this population deserved more! Deserved to have a greater range of choices, of paths to go, and, that's how I realized it was obvious, my return to this country.

And as you would expect, someone who sees the needs that people go through when go somewhere, it's a right shot when you go back to that place, you will try to reduce these needs.

Lets go !! Knowing who the word is, it is the most powerful means of disclosure, This method was used to gather clothes, and we quickly got lots of clothes.

Now is the stage of raising money to be able to carry all the donated clothes. Process that is very difficult to do if we do it alone, but with the support of all, everything goes on! The initial idea was just to take clothes, but if we can take something more as materials to support children's creativity, hygiene products, among other goods, we will do it! Together!

If you have not made anyone smile today, what are you waiting for? ;)

About the author

Hi, I'm Beatriz and I'm 24 years old! Of Lisbon and the north. I like friends, smiles, sharing, union, wills, the want and the do!

Everything started with the want to live! I was taking the master's degree in African Studies and after spending a few months investing in learning about Africa, I realized that it was not what made my mind anxious to want to know more and my heart skipped.
That's when I thought, let's go to Africa! Let's live the culture! And the best way to go is on a mission.

Already in Tarrafal, Santiago Island, in Cape Verde, I just thought I have to go back! To help this great population, and give them the opportunity to see new things and new paths that could be traversed.
The truth is that, I returned to Portugal and dedicated my time to a new apprenticeship and then to return.

After a year, here I am with a few kilos of clothes to take to Cape Verde and with money raised but that is not enough!

Primeira comunhão de uma grande menina!
