From the moment we stepped foot on Cape Verde, we knew it had huge potential as a tourist destination. We have ambitious, but environmentally sympathetic and sustainable, plans in the pipeline, which will continue to drive the local economy, creating more jobs and opportunities for local people.
In addition, the Cape Verde Foundation was founded by The Resort Group PLC to make a positive contribution across a variety of projects in Cape Verde, supporting its people and local communities. Organised and managed by TRG staff across the Company, it is a Group-wide effort in social responsibility to assist with the fundamental issues while supporting the long-term development of the Islands. We recognise that there is important work to be done in terms of community projects, social development and in particular, education for future generations.
Our core focus is helping the children of Cape Verde, offering them new opportunities and prosperity for the future. We conduct various fundraising activities as a Group throughout the year as well as receiving support and donations from our clients and hotels guests. The Foundation’s charitable work has helped local nurseries and schools, stimulated educational programmes across the age groups and given the gift of Christmas to many Cape Verdean children through the yearly Shoebox Campaign.
Donations of clothes, toys, stationery and more are welcome. All donations are used to support and fund new projects across the Cape Verde Islands, find out more on The Cape Verde Foundation website
