Out of approximately 300 entities who reached out to the USA for financial support, only 11 were chosen, Castelos do Sal being one, falling under the category of Democracy and Human Rights. With these funds, we can now slowly inaugurate our virtual school! Thank you USA! Soon all the children from Castelos do Sal will have access to computers, tablets and internet in a properly equipped room that aims to support education in a more attractive and appealing way.

Virtual School: With the financial support from the USA, we aim to create our own virtual school!!

According to latest statistics and research, It appears that there is still a high number of children on the island of Sal that present learning difficulties at different levels due to factors such as: School abandonment, school failure, low self-esteem, lack of stimulation and lack of conditions at home in order to support the childs educational development. With the creation of our virtual school, we aim to accentuate the importance of education by bringing innovating educational ideas and practices to the classroom through pedagogical activities, thus contributing to integrate a better educational performance. Castelos do Sal is already looking for a teacher in order to integrate into our new project. 

We invite companies and individuals to help u sponsor a professional in the area of education for this project.
