We are excited to present –> Bulletin No. 7 <–, highlighting the latest activities of World Family Organization member, ACRIDES – Associação Crianças Desfavorecidas. ACRIDES is a non-profit, private law association dedicated to promoting and defending the rights and duties of children and their families.

Founded on January 23, 1998, in the city of Praia by 15 members, ACRIDES was officially recognized on March 7 of the same year. This NGO was envisioned by its co-founder, Lourença Tavares, to advocate for children’s rights and duties. The organization operates in four main areas: Education, Health, Social Protection, and Promotion of Volunteering.

ACRIDES is endowed with legal personality and is recognized by the Government of Cabo Verde as a public utility entity, as per BO No. 23, II SERIES of June 14, 2006.
