On 24th November 2018, Calao Luxembourg has performed its last monthly beach cleaning for 2018, Sal, Cabo Verde.
A group of volunteers helped us during the operation to collect marine waste.
We would like to thank all the volunteers for their precious help!
Please help us to continue in 2019 these actions by joining in our activities. We have a launch a fund raising which could help us to do so.
Your help and our actions are very important to the Island of Sal; it helps the local communities to attract more tourism and businesses within the island.
This short video will show you our success story.
We count on your continuous help and confidence in our activities
2019 will be challenging!
we will put into place our education programme in schools,
which will focus on biodiversity protection and recycling
The recycling unit will also be on our 2019 programme
Help us to save Cabo Verde from plastic pollution
Despite its geographical isolation, the Cape Verde Islands suffer from a constant flow of plastic debris transported by the ocean current of the Canaries. They accumulate mainly on the eastern shores of the archipelago. These debris pose a permanent threat to the marine life and biodiversity of the islands. Since the project’s start, Calao has collected more than 15 tonnes of marine debris on the island of Sal.
Since the project’s start, Calao has collected more than 15 tonnes of marine debris on Sal. We must continue our operations, because our fight can not stop until the fishing industry imposes on its operators more environmentally friendly practices.
Calao is an international association, based in Luxembourg, created in 2004. Our goal is the protection of biodiversity and the environment through concrete actions and an education program designed for local communities in Africa. After two successful projects in Kenya and Côte d’Ivoire, Calao launched in 2015 an ambitious program to clean up the beaches of the island of Sal in Cape Verde. In order to continue our regular operations of sanitation of the beaches of Sal, we hope to be able to count on your financial support, even symbolic, because the fight against the marine pollution is a long-term fight and unfortunately it announces itself complicated without the involvement of the main culprits of this pollution, namely the international fishing industry. We are convinced that it is our duty towards future generations. We estimate our budget at EUR 5,000 a year, which corresponds to the purchase of bags to transport waste, gloves for volunteers and the rental of a commercial vehicle to transport waste to the landfill.

Le 2 juillet 2018, Sophie Decelle, notre Présidente de Calao, a présenté le projet de création de pépinières et plantations de jeunes arbres dans les forêts sacrées du Nord-ouest de la Côte d‘Ivoire. Ces plantations permettront de combattre la déforestation et de protéger les espèces animales. Cette présentation s’est faite à des jeunes élèves de 5-6 ans de la section anglaise de l’Ecole européenne de Luxembourg.
