Why we need to help them

Bubaque?

The main island of Bijagos, an unknown and therefore unloved archipelago off the coast of Guinea Bissau.

Why help Bubaque?

There is only one high school on the entire archipelago. Transportation between the islands is expensive and slow, big NGOs ignore the islands because they are too small. Only our local partner No Pega Môn tries to help out the islanders.

What will we do?

Reach Out will support No Pega Môn’s educational projects by sponsoring students to enter higher education.

How?

For the last five years of her career, 60-65 takes off six months a year to undertake a cycling campaign throughout Europe to raise funds for Bubaque. In the summer of 2018, she cycled all the way from Antwerp to the North Cape (Norway) and partly back.

How will Reach Out help Bubaque?

There is a major shortage of teachers on the isles of the Bijagos archipelago. We want to enable motivated youngsters to study for teacher at high school. After completion of their studies, they return to their islands to improve the local educational system.

This year, we selected three committed undergraduates who hope we will raise enough funds to see their dream come true in October. You can sponsor them in various ways.

STUDENTS

We raised sufficient funds, but Carlos and Anita did not pass the exams in order to be admitted to higher studies.

Cipriano

CIPRIANO STARTED AFTER ALL!

Cipriano is a highly motivated youngster. He enrolled at a second high school on his own initiative, but did not pass the exam either. Thank goodness, N’dao found a secondary school for him in Guinee where he can do the last year again to catch up.

 

N’dao rented a student flat and equipped it with furniture, bought a school uniform for Cipriano and gave him the necessary school supplies. As we are sending out this newsletter, we are waiting for a progress report, but is a fact that Cipriano has started studying.

Cipriano could not register for the last year of secondary school, because his results were to good during this last year at Bubaque. He is now following a special course to prepare himself for the entrance exam of the high school. This course gives him, according to reports from Ndao, a kind of “Portuguese teacher” certificate.

 

In the next newsletter we hope to bring more news about Cipriano’s experiences at his school in Guinee.
