As Fernando Pessoa said “God wants, man dreams and the work is born”
The “Bamu Non? Ecotourism and Volunteering Trips in São Tomé and Príncipe” is indeed a dream come true.
I will tell you how this idea came about;
Since 2006, I regularly go on vacation to São Tomé, where about 70% of my family lives. On these trips, I started by carrying some offers in my bags, then I started sending crates by boat and in 2015 the crates gave way to maritime containers.
Since then, and with an association created “Helping the Princes of Africa”, every year I send a container loaded with tons of school supplies, food, clothing, toys, first-aid items and personal hygiene, etc. After completing the mission, I post a short video about the delivery of these goods on the association’s page. I always get a lot of messages; some say they dream of volunteering in Africa; others, sigh saying that they loved to know the famous Chocolate Island…
I spent 2 years idealizing this project and… “Bamu Non?”, in Portuguese “Vamos?” came about. I combined with Ecotourism, the Volunteering experience, combined with a good dose of Adventure. This project aims to: make known “my” beautiful island, provide unforgettable memories, while helping the people of São Tomé through the volunteer program, which we will develop with families, communities and institutions.
ATTENTION: Traveling with us can generate joy, new friends and good memories.
