Municipality Day: “Brava” brand presented to the public through Renda Brava products Nova Sintra, Jun 24 (Inforpress) – The first collection by Renda Brava products project, which represents the Brava brand, was presented to the citizens of Brava, in an exhibition organized by CNAD and the City Hall, in Nova Sintra. At the inauguration, the director of the National Center for Art, Crafts and Design (CNAD), Irlando Ferreira, showed that the exhibition and the brand represent the achievement of a “very great” challenge, because working from São Vicente to Brava, through digital means, “is completely different” than when working in person. As he pointed out, since 2018, when the project began, they were already aware that it would be a challenge, but the motivation of the creatives, both designers and the hand-embroidered made by women, made the CNAD and everyone involved bet everything was possible so that the project could get to what it is today. According to this official, the hand-embroidered made by women in Brava no longer exists for several years, and the CNAD wanted with the project to bring hand-embroidered made by women that had identity and symbology with this island, explaining the care the team had in carrying out the work.

Santo Antão: Amupal with “strong commitment” to tourism and environmental projects – Responsible

Porto Novo, Jun 13 (Inforpress) – The Women Association of the Planalto Leste (Amupal), in Santo Antão, has made, in recent years, “a strong bet” in tourism and environmental projects, with the purpose of creating alternatives for the women from this plateau.

Who says so is the president of Amupal, Josefa Sousa, who highlighted, among other projects, the implementation of Casa das Caldeiras, a tourist enterprise, which has been, despite the pandemic, boosting tourism in the Planalto Leste, one of the areas most visited by tourists arriving in Santo Antão.

Thanks to Luxembourg cooperation, Casa das Caldeiras has “good conditions” in terms of accommodation, according to the President of Amupal.

In addition to this tourist unit, Amupal, which already bears the seal made in Santo Antão for products and services, has in operation an agri-food processing unit that, despite the drought hitting the Planalto Leste, has been operating, giving job for some women heads of household.
