Information about the project

"No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open. Therefore, consider carefully how you listen. Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they think they have will be taken from them."Luke 8: 16-18

Ladies and gentlemen,

In the Cape Verde, many children live in extreme poverty, they are vulnerable and endangered by a number of factors that prevent them from experiencing a happy childhood. Children need protection, support and care to grow up in safety, to make them healthy, educated, and to be able to fully exploit their potential. Endowment fund “Naděje Cabo Verde” (Hope of Cape Verde, endowment fund) works with local organizations, governmental representatives, businesses, and individuals to jointly create a safe environment in order to ensure education and more promising future of these children.

I myself grew up in Cape Verde, in a small village called Achada Bel Bel, where families live in dwellings of a few square meters, cooks on brushwood and bring water from the well. For me, the worst was to see small children full of ideas who have no opportunity to follow their future and their dreams.

I have been living for few years in Czech Republic, where I am currently studding at college, working as a model and having a small online shop. I can say that for someone who grew up in Africa in very complicated conditions, I was lucky and I perceived myself as successful in what I do.

Today, I feel very committed to help children and people in my country who face the same difficulties and are in a similar situation as I once were. Through the Hope of Cape Verde, endowment fund I earned € 10,000 in 2018 and helped establish six youth centres and equip them with computers, technologies television and access to internet.

When I was in Cape Verde last summer, I realized that most children go daily to school waking more than 20 km without being accompanied by their parents. Many of them interrupt the study because of that and do not finish it, some children have even health problems due to this.

That's why I'm preparing a charity gala evening called "Naděje Cabo Verde" in Prague on May 15, 2019 in Žofín Palace to get financial support for the purchase of three buses that would be taking these children to schools. The main hall will hold the main program, and a showcase of artworks by the original Cape Verde painter, Helder Cardoso, whose works will be also for sale, will be held throughout the duration of the event in the side hall. During the main program will perform for example the mezzo-soprano Edita Randová, the capverdian pop star Ledjemea, jazz mage Rumeu di Lurdis, etc. You may also look forward to the fashion show with the models of Studio Moravec, Michael Kováčik, Anna Tejklová, Gianni di Leo, Werso and others. Fashion shows will feature leading Czech and Slovak top models and Misses. The participation of certain leading personalities, including the first lady of Cape Verde, well-known Czech politicians, artists and showbusiness representatives, have been confirmed.

Of course, there is excellent catering provided by the partner organization Zátiší Catering Group, a.s.

I would like to know if you are willing to support the project. Any support is very welcome because the children in Cape Verde really need it, and even a little help means a lot for them. You may help by contributing any amount to a transparent account 5592552329/0800, or you may become the official sponsor. The offer for official sponsors is more in detail described HERE.
