The building and the exploration of “Dunes de Dovela” are based on the strong belief that each person can be the actor of his own life whatever his instruction and education level are. It is never too late to learn or to put into acts. Once trained, each person can realise beautiful things... This small scale private initiative aims to offer concrete options for the local community to develop their own means towards autonomy.
Since the beginning of the project, more than 50 people have been trained to building skills: masonry, wood work, roof structure, tiling. All of them learned to use not only basic tools such as metres, drill, planner but also levels, squares or rulers .. kind of tools rarely used in this part of the world or only by foreign experts or masters that preciously keep their know how for themselves.
All of them have been able to stay with their families in this rural area instead of a non chosen economical migration mainly towards South Africa.
Today, 15 people (all coming from the construction team!) are employed. This small team has been trained for hospitality and manages to deal with English rudiments.
Involved in the project since the beginning, this small team is particularly proud of the work achieved and thus is really motivated to turn your holidays at the dunes into an unforgettable stay.
