The Latitude Zero Equatorial Challenge is a project that aims to unite all of CPLP - it´s history, blood, culture and - mainly - the language. Supported by these common points and by a humanitarian component, LZEC started it´s adventure in São Tomé e Príncipe, a country with serious health and education gaps, with which the project mentor, João Brito e Faro, has a umbilical relationship. Resorting to support and donations LZEC offers books, medicines and even medical aid to the populations. However, the most valuable purpose of this adventure was the reopening of roads that had been swallowed by the rainforest, leaving some families abandoned to their fate, isolated from the nearby villages. It is great to know that after 15 years those roads are still open and are proudly cleared off by the population. Longing for the work that was done and for the work that remains to be done in the land with a holy name.
