Get Involved


You can help us by attending one of our fundraising events.  Every August, we participate as a food vendor, at the annual Cape Verdean Independence Day Festival in Onset, MA. 

Please contact us with any fundraising ideas, or sponsorships.



We have a small but dedicated group of volunteers.  Please contact us if you are interested in helping at our fundraisers, organizing donations of supplies or traveling to Cabo Verde to help install a playground.

When we travel to Cabo Verde to build a playground, we also deliver the following for the children:

School Supplies: Notebooks, Pencils, Pens, Erasers, Coloring Pencils, Crayons, Pencil sharpener, rulers etc.
