Sapienza Consulting has sponsored the 7th Sunshine in Nosy Komba Tournament, a sports event organised at the European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESA-ESTEC) to raise funds in support of the development of the Nosy Komba community in Madagascar.
The event was held Friday 25 and Saturday 26 May and comprised all kinds of activities, from sports tournaments and dance workshops to activities for children, all in a festive atmosphere with live music, a food and drinks fair and a market for handmade products.
The Sunshine in Nosy Komba Tournament raised a total amount of €23,714, enough to keep current projects running and start new ones to continue improving the quality of life in the Malagasy island.
The organizing team, that will travel to Nosy Komba in August, said about the event:
The Tournament was a great success! With the funds raised we will be able to increase the school’s capacity to 400 children to welcome kids from neighboring villages, give a new vegetal roof to the building, pay the salary of 13 teachers and assistants, and support local maternity.
The initiative, created in 2011 by ESTEC employees, supports health care, sustainable development and education projects, and has granted access to education to hundreds of children. For more information about the Sunshine in Nosy Komba initiative visit their website.
Sapienza Consulting would like to thank the organizers and volunteers for the fantastic work that made this event possible. We hope to see you again next year. Until then, stay tuned for more Sapienza Consulting news or subscribe to our newsletter!
