Cabo Ledo, Angola

September – October 2019

Vanderful was generously hosted by the Carpe Diem Resort in the community of Cabo Ledo. In collaboration with Angola Waves and FADEN, also with a local boat builder Graiciano; Frankie and Gibbo mentored 6 individuals to shape Alaia and Paipo Boards.

They were also given the amazing opportunity to receive training from the ISA (The International Surfing Association) in Water Safety, Level 1 Surf instuctor and Surf Judging.

Our Expressive Arts workshops functioned with about 80 children strong; ending with the first drama production in this community; ‘Chega de Moscas, vamos limpar!’

Cuerama, Angola

October – November 2019

After making strong connections and relationships during Vanderful Angola, we were lucky enough to meet an inspirational woman; Olga. President of FADEN; Olga had been very present during our time in Cabo Ledo. She invited us to facilitate a version of our workshops at her social project: Projecto Cuerama.

Cuerama is a small village, far into central Angola along some unpassable roads. This was an extremely inspirational and unique experience. We condensed our workshops to 3 weeks. Due to being away from the ocean, ‘Craftsmanship’ made Chess Boards and the children learnt to play this mentally stimulating game.

Expressive Arts established their themes and performed short improvisations and English nursery rhymes. We worked with the entire school in Cuerama; all 500 children!

Give children the chance to play.
