We Are Here For Our Future

Their goal is to become seafarers. In Portugal a fully rigged training ship awaits their arrival and on board they will be trained and tested in a challenging environment far from home.

The cadets all come from Angola. A country which has suffered from many years of civil war. These men will be given a chance to forge their own future and to do so they will have to force a daunting barrier. 12 weeks of tough training. Night and day. Seven days a week. In all weathers.

A project like this has never been attempted before in modern shipping history. Some will succeed, others will not. Those who do will be given a job and a chance of a better life for them and their families. This is their stories; featuring their triumphs and disappointments. This is the story of how they created their own future.
