Praia, Sep 23 (Inforpress) – The Maison des Jeunes Association of Bettembourg, Luxembourg, promotes a concert at the Bettembourg château on October 5th, with live performances by Cassandra Lobo to support the children from Fogo Island.
Paca Rimbau Hernández, from the organization, told Inforpress that the idea is not only to support the children, but also to help equip a library at Teixeira de Sousa High School, in São Filipe, in Fogo Island.
“The overall objective is to contribute, by our means, to improving the teaching conditions on the island, according to the requests indicated by the teachers and students. In this context, and in order to raise funds for this project, the MJC is holding this fundraising gala,” he said.
He also informed that with the help of the artist Nelson Neves and other people who live in Fogo Island, as part of this project, they will later paint the murals on the premises of that high school.
