"I learned a lot with the volunteers and with the children and I'm a witness of the smiles that SFA gives to the people with whom it has the opportunity to be. I think that the rehabilitations made have a positive impact in the different communities. I believe in this project and I want to continue to dream and make it happen."

"I started as a monitor in the summer camp and since that I decided to become a SFA's volunteer. I feel enthusiastic and proud to belong in "Sonha, Faz e Acontece" because, apart of having this constant exchange of experiences and knowledge, being a volunteer has made me a better person."

"What attracted me more about the SFA's work was the possibility of working side by side with our local volunteers and to create more value, together, in the Island. Living the Prince Island was the most fulfilling experience of my life, it was a month of continuous learning, a month in which I learned that the most beautiful things are the most simple too, a month which I received the most spontaneous smiles and a feeling of pure happiness."

"The banner activity of my month was the summer camp. Of course the happiness of the children was not a surprise, but their involvement and adherence to the dynamics was contagious and I keep those moments in my heart. Together we created something bigger than ourselves and realised a wonderful project with value and meaning for the Principe Island."

"Being a SFA's volunteer means to have a constante commitment with the mission itself. It is to contribute for the sustainable development of the Principe Island. And the Principe makes this "task" so easy, because it has the capacity to make us feel at home although being a thousand kilometres away of our own home."

"It would be reductive to say or to think that the SFA's magic comes down to the Principe Project. Also the Portugal Project and it structure, which I belong to, have an equal and importante role too. Here, in SFA, everything is umbilically linked and it happens because of this symbiosis, but also of the diversity of experiences, cultures and knowledge of those who are part of it, that this association is, through my eyes, unique and so special."

"We invest every second with the community, from the youngest with the Reading Club and Actions of Environmental Awareness, to the oldest with the Gravana University and the Entrepreneurship Contest. The motivation, the humility and willingness to learn of these people are the feelings that make me remember every smile that we received."

"It was for sure the most remarkable experience of my life. So remarkable that it becomes impossible to put into words all that I have lived, because there are things that only the heart can feel. A constant learning, an unlimited sharing and an unparalleled gratitude."

"After entering the Principe Project, I was assigned in a team and it was told that we could create our own project! During the months that followed that "team" became family and "the project" was our dreams! That's how I realised what the SFA's "DREAM" meant."

"I understand that volunteering is mainly the ability to create bonds. It is to be open to know and to like people. And in the Principe Island that is easy because it is the best part: people can make us feel at home immediately"

"In 2013 I made one of the most successful decisions of my life: to be part of the SFA family. I got to know the Principe Island, returned with the same enchantment and with the same desire to continue to do more for them."
