We first heard about the Kusasa Project through friends of the Foundation – they are a charitable organisation working for a brighter tomorrow for the children of South Africa. The charity relies on the generosity of a global network of friends and businesses that are somehow linked with the area or our supporters, as well as people who just want to donate, in helping to change the futures of many young children with this wonderful initiative.
So, we are very excited about the opportunity for the children they help to participate in the Gothia World Cup in 2018. It is the world’s largest and most international youth football tournament, one unique due to its mix of teams and participants from around the world. Next year, the tournament is set to be hosted in Gothenburg, Sweden and the Cape Verde Foundation is proud to be able to help.
The project works with hundreds of disadvantaged children and has been doing so for over ten years. It manages three key programs; a feeding scheme, providing breakfast to 1000 children a day, their Bursary Pupils, who they sponsor to attend a High Standard Model C School (one of the former pupils just qualified as a Charted Accountant and has started working at Deloitte) and the main initiative, their own school, which was founded in 2011 and now has six grades. It provides the best foundation education from Grade 0 to Grade 4, the most important years of development.
It is acknowledged that sport is a vital part of children’s lives and we are honoured to be a part of motivating this incredible life-changing experience. The children are thrilled to be going on this adventure and we are sure it will positively impact everyone in the Community.
