Mussulo children benefit from Aldeia das Artes project

All-in-all, over 1,500 disadvantaged children and young people from Mussulo Island benefit from the Aldeia das Artes – Meninos do Mussulo project. Through this project, the children and young people can learn the skills they need to learn a trade and become fully integrated into society.


Support from various financers

In terms of financing, the project has benefited from a wide-ranging pooling of efforts. The 3,000 sq. M plot was given by Mussulo management, with the approval of Belas municipality.

The architectural project was given by the architect and finance for construction, USD 1.7 million, was fully provided by an individual and an Angolan company. The health centre was supplied by Consaúde, the IT room by Printel and the TV and internet service by Zap.


Aldeia das Artes launched in March

Some 50% of Mussulo’s population is under 20. Consaúde has decided to invest in these young people and has launched the Aldeia das Artes project, whose Christmas party brought together 2,500 children.


A Happier and More Giving Christmas

Taking advantage of the Christmas season, the managing company “decided to organise an awareness-raising event aimed at civil society. Nothing better than to raise awareness of the project and collect toys, clothes, stationery and food for children’s teas,” explained Ana Madaleno, project director to Sol.


Final phase in Aldeia das Artes Construction

The last phase in the construction of the Aldeia das Artes project finishes in November and it is due to open in February, in time for the start of the new academic year in March.

Only the last phase needs to be finished at this time, which consists of the sports field, lighting for the whole area and installation of water tanks. The computer room, library, refectory and kitchen, study room and health centre also have to be furnished and equipped.
