kapverden tagTo mark Cape Verde Day, instigated by the ‘Europäisch-Kapverdischen Freundeskreis e.V.’ association on 26th August 2017, three representatives of our supporting organization in Germany – its chair, Dr Friedrich Doerr, his wife Dr Christa Doerr, and Dr Martin Peter – travelled to Bad Bramstedt near Hamburg. There, in a relaxed and harmonious atmosphere, they were able to get to get better acquainted with Hans J. Hess (of the support initiative called Amigos de Cruzinha/Santo Antao ( They agreed on a further exchange of contact details and information, enabling them to pool their efforts in the future as the opportunity arises. Although Cruzinha da Garça – 28 km distant as the crow flies – is Monte Trigo’s ‘next-door neighbour’ as one heads northeast along the coastline, it can only be reached by boat along the coast or overland via Porto Novo and Ribeira Grande: no less than 108 km! We are delighted about these new ties between Cape Verde and Europe, and look forward to encouraging each other and working together successfully!

July 2017 saw Ana Veríssimo Birenheide and Stefan Birenheide of the ‘Sodade - Deutsch-Kapverdische-Gesellschaft e.V.’ association ( visit us in Tarrafal. Like us, the organization is active on Santo Antão, where it has been operating since August 2005. It supports the primary school in Manta Velha (in Ribeira da Garça within the Ribeira Grande area), encourages music projects in schools, and works with the boarding school in Porto Novo – and, where possible, provides financial assistance for pupils staying there. (It is precisely this that is one of the problems facing those children in Tarrafal who want to continue their education after primary school: the secondary school is so far away that they have to live there during term time – either with (close or distant) relatives or at a boarding school. This also applies, of course, to all other pupils who don’t live near one of the four secondary schools on Santo Antão). It was back in spring, when we launched our first ‘Join in!’ campaign, that Sodade agreed to help our boarders in the coming school year, and paid the incredible sum of 100,000 escudos (909 euros) into the boarding school’s account.

Our heartfelt thanks go to you!
