Welcome To Centro Nos Kaza

Ola, bom dia.

This website is managed by the Cape Verdian registered charity CNK-UK, which was founded to support children from very deprived backgrounds who live on the island of Sal.

This is achieved by assisting and partially funding the Centro Nos Kaza. Nos Kaza means “Our House” in English.

Run by Aldir Duarte, Nos Kaza started out in a tiny classroom where children are taken off the street and provided with basic schooling and a safe place to be. The original Nos Kaza has now become Centro Nos Kaza.

2016 was a busy year for the Centro Nos Kaza. When the Chinese finished building the new school in Santa Maria, the old school building was made available to Nos Kaza. This has expanded the space available from one tiny room to a real school with classrooms, a kitchen, and an office.

The year 2017 promises to be just as busy with plans for the refurbishment of the new school premises and activities for the children and the local community.

The primary aim of the CNK-UK charity remains to support the street children of Sal through Centro Nos Kaza. In addition to this role, the charity also accepts major donations from other people, companies and organisations to assist local projects in the areas of sport, arts, and culture.

The charity depends on your financial donations. Please visit the Sponsorship page and find out how you can sponsor one of Nos Kaza’s children.
