Help Dulcelena to study Astronomy

Update posted by Patricia Figueiro Spinelli On Nov 22, 2018

Dear friends and supporters,

We have achieved our goal!

With that it was possible to buy Dulcelena's ticket to Brazil. She has already presented her thesis that was graded with 9 (out of 10). In addition, her supervisor invited her to write an article. This is wonderful!

While in Brazil, Dulce has also took part in the XXVI Astronomy Week of the Museum of Astronomy and Related Sciences in Rio, whose theme was the contributions of African peoples to cultural and modern astronomy.

This was only possible because of your support. We are grateful to all those who believe in education as transforming tool, and who, through a donation, helped Dulcelena to become the first person in Cape Verde to have a degree in Astronomy.

If you would like to know more about how Portuguese-speaking countries are united in the promotion of astronomy related activities for sustainable development, follow the PLOAD page: http://pload.org/.

Warm regards.

Dear friends and supporters,

As you already know, we are running one campaign via GoGetFunding and another via Catarse (for Brazilians that want to contribute but do not have PayPal). Catarse campaign is going very well, being now 62% funded.

We have manage to find a much less expensive option for Dulcena's transatlantic flight with TACV - local Cape Verdean company. She will fly from Praia to Fortaleza. That will cost 1/2 of the value initially estimated with other companies, such as TAP or Royal Air Maroc.

This news was shared with our Catarse supporters and a miracle has occurred! One of the supporter has offered to buy the domestic flight (Fortaleza - Rio de Janeiro - Fortaleza) with miles.

With a less expensive international ticket plus a domestic ticket for free, we will need to raise a lot less money than initially planned. That is the reason, once again, we have adjusted our goal.

We thank all of you who have already collaborated with us. We are almost there!

Dear friends and backers,

Many people abroad from Europe and USA are having trouble to donate through GoGetFunding platform. Specifically, people from Portuguese speaking countries, that feel very connected with Dulcelena's cause cannot donate, either because they do not have PayPal or because they don't understand the English. Therefore, we will create a second campaign in Portuguese, splitting our goal of US$2,300 in US$1,600 (GoGetFunding) and US$700 (Catarse or Vakinha).

We will inform the link to the other campaign very soon.

Thank you for you help and understanding.

Patricia and Dulce.
