The German Baseball-Bundesliga club Mainz Athletics, German champion in 2007, is helping Softball at Cape Verde. They are supporting the Academia de Desporto, Educaoa e Cultura with a donation of gloves, bats, balls and catcher equipment. The school has programs for soccer and basketball and now wants to initiate a Softball project. According to a report in a local newspaper the Athletics got in contact with the school through the 23-year-old Elisabeth Graen who is going to Cape Verde voluntarily for a year of charity work. Mainz head coach Ulli Wermuth gave her private training session so she can work with the kids at the school.
