Description of the program

If you are asking yourself the question: "How to take a gap year with an internship abroad ", we have a solution.

Like all of our humanitarian project programs . For the 42 children divided into the 3 kindergarten and primary classes, supervision and educational programs are provided by only 7 teachers, which explains the urgent need for volunteers. Cape Verde is unfortunately often affected by numerous droughts, which causes major economic and social problems. The school therefore plays an essential role in the education of children.

School starts at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. The main role of the volunteers and interns is to assist the local teachers in their daily tasks with the children. People with experience (BAFA, education studies, etc.) and people fluent in Portuguese will be given additional responsibilities. All participants take lessons on site to learn a few words of Portuguese upon arrival.
