The Project BANG has as main goal to strength the educational system from the 7th to the 9th year in Cape Verde, Praia. It has as expected outcomes to reduce the number of cases of drop outs of school and disapprove of the school year. This project is composed by three different sessions:

- Artistic activities (theatre, dance and music): moment in which students have time and support to develop artistic activities of their interest, from theatre pieces to musical shows, with the support of two adults (it happens once a week, with the duration of two hours);
- Project development: promote the realization of a project which will be directly related to a crucial factor for the sustainable development of Cape Verde, with the support of two adults (it happens once a week, with the duration of two hours).
