'It is not enough to be compassionate. You must act.' - Dalai Lama


CSD-Foundation brings together travelers and locals. Co-creation starts with projects rooted in education, sustainable tourism and local entrepreneurship. At the moment this is happening on the island Sal in Cape Verde, and in other places in the world in the future. We want to create opportunities by facilitating a network. We collect materials for those who want to grow, but are unable to independently. We want to provide an unforgettable journey, or encounter, filled with the local norms and values. In co-creation with you!


In June of 2021 we have been assigned an ANBI-status. This means that individuals and companies can profit from a tax benefit when they decide to donate to our foundation. Donations can be made one time or periodically. Do you want to know more about this? Please contact us.



Photo contest ‘Sinti bo Felisidadi’

This year CSD-Foundation is organizing a photo contest ‘Sinti bo Felisidadi’ in collaboration with PicSal and Mathias Andrade Photography. All photographers based on Sal Island with Cape verdean nationality have been invited to participate. The aim of this project is to show the work and talent of the photographers.

If you have any questions, please contact us.



By facilitating different types of education both the locals and the travelers are stimulated to step outside of their comfort zone.

Sustainable tourism

More tourists are choosing to travel sustainably. We offer an alternative to mainstream tourism by introducing you to the local culture and locals.

Local entrepreneurship

We support local entrepreneurs by involving them in our projects. Through the collaboration they are supported in their work and they get a platform to share that work.
