ABOUT THE PROJECT
Round Table 44 Berlin, together with the Dr. Knabe Foundation, opened an english school on São Tomé & Príncipe, to provide young adults with the opportunity to improve their english language skillls and education.
The long term goal is to improve the students chances on the local labour market in tourism or services.
For the project we are looking for Tables or Circles to become monthly supporters!
ABOUT THE COUNTRY
São Tomé e Príncipe is the second smallest country in Africa with almost 200,000 inhabitants. Beautiful landscapes, idyllic beaches and old testimonies of the Portuguese Colonial Era invite you to a great and varied holiday.
The people of the small island state are very friendly and would be happy to welcome more tourists to their paradise.
ABOUT THE SCHOOL
Compulsory education in São Tomé e Príncipe is limited to primary school with the main goal to reduce illiteracy. Other languages are not mandatory. This has negative consequences for the tourism, as a large part of the population does not speak English.
The project aims to give young adults English lessons to prepare them for the job market and thus strengthen the economy of the country.
ABOUT THE TEAM
To ensure that we achieve very good results and that the money reaches the students, we work together in a cross-country team between Germany and São Tomé & Príncipe. The team consists of Round Table 44 Berlin, Dr Knabe Foundation and 2 local contacts.
The project is also supported by the Universidade de São Tomé e Príncipe in the capital.

SIDE PROJECTS & SUPPORT
We need support to transport the equipment from Germany to São Tomé und Príncipe!
We need aditional equipment for the School:

Our plan is to move into a new building.
That will allow us to run more classes at same time and implement a computer-room.
