Rabo de Peixe is a small village situated on the north coast of the island of Sao Miguel in the Azores. Rabo de Peixe is known as the poorest village of Portugal due to its high birth rate and problems relating to alcoholism, school absenteeism and general lack of special teaching classes and, in some cases, domestic abuse.
The Project “Rabo de Peixe Sabe Sonhar” (Literal translation; Rabo de Peixe knows how to dream) was created in 2004 by Jesuit priests in collaboration with a group of young university students.
Their objective was to provide holidays for the underprivileged children of Rabo de Peixe.
