SOS Children’s Village Tour

This tour gives you an inside look into the life of children that are not alone anymore. Children that are taken in by SOS Children’s Village, like our very own local expert guide Jair. Jair spend a large part of childhood in SOS Children’s Village. Here he learned to take care of himself, others around him and the world.


A life story

On this tour Jair will take you along his own life story and his experiences as it reflects those you will be visiting in the Village. During the visit we will enjoy a nice lunch together with the children that are currently living there, to connect and hear their own stories. After lunch we will join in a lovely dance activity with the children which is bound to become a big party for everybody. So make sure to come in a dancing mood as Jair is infamous for his dancemoves and will not be shy of sharing them with you. This dance party will also be the ending of this tour.


More memories that move

This tour also has a few possible optional extra’s. For example it can be combined with a very special capoeira workshop and show, a cooking session or a jazzy jamsession with a local musician. Of course it is possible to further financially support the work that SOS Children’s Villages is doing. Ask us for the possibilities and see how you can become involved during the tour.

    Santiago wat ben je mooi ❤
    Je bent zo puur… rauw… en hebt mijn hart gestolen!

    Wat een geweldige tijd heb ik gehad op Santiago dankzij Terra Terra Tours. Judith en Jair jullie hebben mij laten ervaren wat Terra Terra daadwerkelijk is: Puurheid… puur natuur, pure mensen, puur eten en puur leven.

    Donderdag 13-02-2020 heeft Jair ons meegenomen met de SOS-Kinderdorp Tour. Jair is opgegroeid in dit dorp en heeft ons zijn indrukwekkende levensverhaal verteld en laten zien waar hij opgegroeid is. Dit deed hij vol trots en enthousiasme. Wat goed dat dit soort organisaties bestaan!

    At primary school you run your lungs out to run as many laps as possible and collect as much sponsor money as possible. Well I was never a winner in that, but all the little bit will help. Whether you always get a course about charity at school and communication with videos is even better. But had it really happened with the money that was collected? Today I had a tour with terra terra tours at a worldwide major project and well known to most people: SOS children’s villages.

    In Cape Verde there are two complete villages on Santiago and on São Vicente there is a small day center. Jair, whom I have known for about three weeks, grew up in the SOS children’s village and showed us around. We looked at the house where he had lived from 8 to 18 years. There are ten of these types of houses in Riberão Chiqueiro and on average 8 children live with one person “Mãe” (the mother who lives in the house 24/7) and various Tia’s during the day (aunts who help with the household). Jair showed his room and the bed where he slept and there was also the place where he told his personal story.

    “He told us how it transformed his life from streetkid to a conscious man with life goals. I asked about the contrast of the boys he grew up with in the same neighborhood – very hard and focused on facts: eight died and many are stuck in the He was very proud to tell his story and that in the beginning he didn’t want to go at all, but that afterwards he was so grateful for everything.Now he is a great example for the children who now live in the village and the community around the SOS children’s village. His caretakers from that time are also very proud to see him like that “.

    Today another day with a lot of awareness about my life in Europe and the lives here in Cape Verde.
