“Mandatory” stop for our guests: visiting our projects, the NURSERY SCHOOLS in the villages of the south of the island, so as to see and to experience firsthand the commitment that for years has been making it possible for many children to have a safe place suited for growing up, playing, studying and having the necessary basis for building a better future. Since nursery school, children already start learning how to read and write, as well as a few english and italian words thanks to nursery rhymes and songs. Visitors can thus get to know our activities in person, talk to the local staff and see how funds are used.
Moreover, it is possible to visit the PROFESSIONAL SCHOOL in Jambiani, which was created with the aim of offering a place of training for boys and adults without having to move to the city. At the moment the school offers language courses, sewing classes and pottery classes. In the future the education courses on offer will be broader in accordance with the needs of the local population.
Another activity that supports the association is the FAIR TRADE LOCAL MARKET set up at the Starfish restaurant. The products are all manufactured by local cooperative associations and craftsmen in Zanzibar, some of whom received their education in our profession school. On the one hand, buying products will directly support people involved in the manufacturing. On the other hand, a small percentage will support the projects carried out by the association.
