astelo de Sonhos and ACCA Kids are once again appealing for your help to ensure that youngsters across the Algarve who often 'do without' can start the new school year with confidence and with the basic essentials to help them achieve.
Your help is needed
Although the government in Portugal does provide text books for the poorest, it does not supply children with the simple, everyday materials that are vital to support the learning process.
Every year, the back-to-school programme attempts to help as many kids as possible, by providing them with backpacks filled with those all-important essentials.
Here's how you can help and make a real difference.
As well as the backpacks every child needs black exercise books, pens, pencils, rubbers, sharpeners, A4 files, set squares, scissors etc.
Would you be willing to add some items to your shopping trolley to enable a child to start the term with a smile? From 21st August Continente and other shops will be stocking their BACK TO SCHOOL range.
This is what's need for each student under 10:
- A4 lined, squared and plain exercise books
- 1 A5 plain exercise book
- Pencil case, scissors, colouring pencils and felt tip pens
- 30cm ruler, pencil sharpener, rubber, HB pencils, blue pens, glue stick
For children over 10, the above plus:
- Recorder, set square and protractor set
- Blue, black and red biros
- A4 files, A4 paper with punched holes
- Calculator, compass
- For senior students, the above plus:
- 1 ream of plain paper
- Post-it notes
- Pen drives, stapler, scientific calculator
If you can shop for any of the above and drop your purchases off at one of the points listed below between 21st August and 4th September, you will be making that difference.

ACCA, the Algarve-based charity dedicated to to helping children in need across the region, was founded in 2000. Over the past two decades, ACCA has delivered life-saving, and life-changing, therapies and medical aid to disadvantaged youngsters who either live below the poverty line, or are orphaned and in care, or who require specialist treatment that is not available to them through Social Services.
ACCA is run by a small Committee who give their time, experience and enthusiasm freely to making the world a better place for these children. Thanks to our generous sponsors, donors, and volunteers we can make a difference, and put smiles on young faces.
