Arto Carpus Castelo Foundation’s activities in Africa have especially concentrated on São Tomé e Príncipe, and partly on South Africa as well. The foundation has both enabled and supported entrepreneurship by offering education and giving guidance in fishing and agriculture, among others. ACCF has supported local families by enabling and activating education and entrepreneurship. The foundation has improved their quality of life by renovating a local children’s home. Child sponsorship is included in the foundation’s activities. In accordance to the foundation’s principles, our activities in Africa have been guided by the endeavour towards harmony between Mankind, Nature and Culture.

The foundation has participated in the SADA program, which is aimed towards preserving a rare tortoise species. Through it, we have enabled 850 local children to have their own, personal turtle, with the intention of instructing them in environmental responsibility and ecological thinking.
