Hawila Project

Education and Culture, by sail

Our mission

Advocate for environmental justice by means of education and culture.

Together, we can act for a more sustainable future!


Hawila aims at building awareness about globalisation along her route. We want to carry our mission to teach skills linked to traditional sailing and boat building, using natural and sustainable materials.

Our projects
