With interaction within The participants and the community children, it is a goal that the children can one be prepared for their future careers ahead with an addition of English proficiency & a global perspective added by participants from all over the world. There are 30 children in kindergarten and 260 students in primary school, with 130 of them being young girls. There are only 5 people involved in addressing the needs of such a vast pool of children in Kindergarten & Primary School.

When considering the social background of this town, mostly the Mums have to raise their children alone and have to work hard. So there isn’t much of caretaking and attention for children’s education. The men are either abroad or work as fishermen or are living in other areas working as labourers. A lot of kids live with neighbours’ or grandmothers. A household in Cape Verde has an average of 4 children; rich families have two and poorer families generally have more children. It is not unusual for children to change their place of residence within the extended families.

Cape Verde has a history of economic issues, especially droughts that occur from time to time; on the other hand, and also shows a strong social structure in bonds between family members.
