Some of the latest news on the children of Calheta in Cape Verde ...

These are some of the people who have recently joined the "project of Calheta" and will ensure the payment of the school fees and school material of  afew of the children of Calheta.

Carlos Saboga and his children will be "looking after" Eunice de Jesus' school needs, together with Luis and his girlfriend Kátia "providing" for the school needs of Eunice and Kevin. Lurdes (Luis' mother) who is already "in charge" of Diva upon having heard that Elcy would like to have a "godmother" decided to "take on" the challenge. Charlotte has also decided to "provide" for the school needs of two girls (Marline and Delmízia), with the family Tavares (Marco and Micá) having taken the responsibility for Nolita's school needs.

The school fees for 2012 have therefore been ensured and will be paid by the beginning of September.

There are now a total of 32 children we are "responsible for" in terms of school needs (27),  kindergarten (2) and basic needs (3), with 7 potential "godparents" on a waiting list. All I can say is  that we are widening up our "net of solidarity" even in a moment of crisis like the one we are actually facing ...
