Sustainability is about more than just the environment. It’s also about contributing to the community we live in. While tourism has brought new wealth and opportunities to the islands, we want to help ensure that everyone in the community benifits. With this in mind, we will be soon launching our program “Leave No Child Behind” in which 1% of profits will be donated to Casa Do Gaiato (children’s home) in Ponta Delgada. Guests can also make an optional donation when checking out.
Additionally, net proceeds from the regular Expats In Azores drinks and other ad-hoc events are donated to the Children’s home. Attendees can make their own donations through the Solar Branco Eco-Estate or direct to the charity here.
While well-intentioned visitors have enquired about helping at the home or volunteering time, thank you for your understanding that this isn’t possible. Books, toys, clothes or cash donations are gratefully received and will be passed on.
Visit Casa Do Gaiato to find out more about their work.
