Faces2Hearts in CABO VERDE: Xalabas or community-driven sustainable tourism

10 / 10 / 19

In this first video we will be taking you through the lively and colourful streets of Achada Grande Frente, a fisherman neighbourhood over looking the port of Praia. We will focus on the project Xalabas, created through a partnership between the ONG Africa 70 and Pilorinhu Association. It aims to contribute to a greater integration of the community in the development of sustainable tourism by expanding and diversifying the tourism offer, through urban art workshops, urban remapping and any other activities.

These are Bruno from Cape Verde and Alisha from Belgium. They are both well-travelled due to relatives spread across the world. They both studied abroad and got out of their comfort zone many times, which made them adaptable and easy going. They share passion for the ocean and can’t help dancing when they hear afro or Latino beats. They will take buses, boats and planes to cross seas, hills and volcanoes, to bring back untold stories during the month of October. Finally, they will show you how EU-funded projects, on no less than 5 islands of Cabo Verde, helped improve the quality of life of Cape Verdeans.
