Our education project is located in Tarrafal which is a small town in the northwest of Cape Verde, along with a Cobalt Blue Sea and lovely beaches. You will be teaching conversational English and other related subjects depending on the necessity of the children in this town, in order to help them do well in their education.

Whether young or older this is a fabulous programme.

Just be prepared to get stuck in, work as a team and soak up every moment. I had the pleasure of working alongside fellow volunteers who I remain in contact with. We all share the desire to return to the island to meet again. Be prepared to meet people who will make you a better person :)
