Social Impact Travel
As a travel enthusiast, my exposure to contrasting realities around the world made me develop a strong sense of accountability for bringing about positive impact to less fortunate communities - especially in developing countries.
This is why in the last half a decade, I started to combine tourism with opportunities to interact and support some local communities, families and especially children.
After having run privately-funded efforts in Kenya, Ethiopia and Seychelles, I felt motivated to take one step further and run funding campaigns among family, friends and colleagues to support such initiatives.
Pasua, Tanzania - 2019
In December 2019, my partner and I will be on a private trip to Tanzania. Once again, we have identified a target need in the region we will be visiting and started a fundraiser with the goal of maintaining a children center for 90 orphans and street kids for a whole year.
This is our invitation for you to embark in this journey and help us leave a positive footprint in the lives of these children in need. Can we count on you?

Sal Island, Cape Verde - 2018
In 2018, I held my first fundraising for charity campaign. 100% of the funds were invested in the welfare of a group of 68 children in the community of Santa Maria in the Island of Cape Verde.
I spent a week in Cape Verde, where I personally met the children who depend on the support of the group of volunteers "Castelos do Sal", and thanks to the donations collected, we managed to deliver 5 weeks of food supply for the children, a unique piece of clothing for each one of them as well as 50 children's books to build their library.
The campaign was held online. Details of the campaign including all updates and final report can be found under https://www.gofundme.com/thyagoscharity. All funds collected and spent in the campaign have been documented and invoices can be found under this online folder.
