Projeto Príncipe 2012: equipa

The crowdfunding campaign will end on July 18, since our volunteers depart to the Island of Principe on July 19. Over the last 9 months, the volunteers organized several fundraising activities and have raised near € 5,000.00. Therefore, our goal is to raise the required amount to perform all the activities, i.e., € 2,200.00.

Please note that this is the second time that SFA is financed through this crowdfunding platform. In 2013, Project Príncipe 2013 was able to raise all the required amount to rebuilt the Roça Abade school (also in the Island of Príncipe).

About the author

In 2010, moved by the desire to create value, a group of friends flew to the Principe Island in Sao Tome and Principe. There we discovered a different reality, where happiness and smiles prevailed, but where there were no dreams of a different future, or an alternative to the existing reality. Books to read, teachers to teach, libraries to study, training in several areas ... In Principe, there was - and still there is - a lot to do for the Education of those children and ‘Sonha, Faz e Acontece’ wants to participate actively in this change that reveals urgency. Because educate is take care of the future!

That was how, in April 2012, ‘Sonha, Faz e Acontece’ was born, an association of social entrepreneurship and volunteerism whose dream is to promote the Education on the Portuguese-speaking African Countries (PALOP countries).

We started by the Principe Island, what we assume it as our pilot project, but our intention is to expand our activity to other countries where the Education still is a basic need.Currently, we are focused on two lines of action - one in Portugal, the other in Principe - and all the help and revenues 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.
