The main island of Bijagos, an unknown and therefore unloved archipelago off the coast of Guinea Bissau.
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.
Reach Out will support No Pega Môn’s educational projects by sponsoring students to enter higher education.
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.
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.
Cipriano would like to become a local teacher to help improve Bubaque's educational system.
Carlos lives on the island of Orangozinho and is eager to serve and strengthen his local community by becoming a teacher.
Anita comes from the island of Uracane. She first wanted to become a nurse, but due to the dire shortage of teachers, she has now decided to study for teacher.
