Sonha, Faz e Acontece (Dream, Do and it Happens) was born in April 2012 after a few of us landed, for the first time the Summer before, in the island of Príncipe (São Tomé and Príncipe). What started at first as a one-month volunteer mission quickly became a permanent task of empowering education in the Portuguese-speaking African countries.
Presently, two projects fulfill more than 50 volunteers daily dreams. Day by day, years after years and project after project, they have been promoting education and sustainable development, both in Príncipe and Portugal. There in Príncipe, we send every year a team of volunteers who organize Summer camps for children, workshops, professional coaching for youngsters and adults, as well as rebuild schools and health centers, partnering with local teams. Here in Portugal, we dedicate ourselves to hosting and guiding youngsters from the Portuguese-speaking African countries who come to Portugal to pursue their studies.
