The Official Launch of a new project in the community of São Francisco, Santiago

What a good day! Today we joined the São Francisco community for the cleanup campaign. Dozens of bags of trash were collected. Plastics (many) and glass (few because of the ongoing awareness raising of the glass recycling) suitable for recycling were delivered to the São Francisco Ecocenter. Now, the community’s streets are much cleaner and more beautiful: for your the eye and for the health. But while we cleaned we also sang, play and at the end we have a delicious lunch - katxupa rei sabi


With this activity we officially started a new project with the focus on community of Sao Francisco but also strengthen capacity of the Ecocenter of Sao Francisco for plastic recycling that will benefit thousands of people in the Municipality of Praia and our environment. The project is funded by the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives #CFLI #CanadaFund 


All of this would not be possible without the support of our collaborators and partners: AguaTrindade who provided the special T-shirts and made us the ‘green team’ and all the refreshments; The students of Escola Não Agrupada de São Francisco and its manager for supporting cleaning and recycling in Sao Francisco, Professors from #UniPiaget who gave a hand in collecting and separating rubbish. And wonderful ladies from San Francisco for the katxupa rika.
