Hello and welcome to our website!

We are a nonprofit in the town of Alcobaça, Portugal, founded by the local Baptist church in 1993 to serve the whole community. Our name means “new life.”

Our vision is “people educated and transformed, contributing to the common good.”

We currently have day care and kindergarten with over 60 children, and all the children and families attest to the love and joy that is felt here.

We have lots of exciting plans for the future! in time we will be translating some information about what we do and why it’s different – so, come back often!
