Faces2Hearts in CABO VERDE: Bringing energy to remote areas of Santo Antão

13 / 11 / 19

Tarrafal de Monte Trigo and Monte Trigo are two neighbourhoods in Santo Antao that have great conditions for fishing and agriculture. However these neighbourhoods are not easily accessible. This project’s name is SESAM-ER. It has brought electricity to Tarrafal by extending the public electric network there, and has installed solar panels in Monte Trigo, providing the village with nearly 24h/7 electricity disponibility, compared to the former 4h.

SESAM-ER was financed by the European Union and the municipal chamber of Porto Novo. This project was executed by a consortium of companies and institutions coordinated by Aguas de Ponta Preta(APP).

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.
