Cape Verde is an archipelago of ten islands on the west coast of Africa with around 500,000 inhabitants. The country is on the route of the ELLALink submarine cable, the first to directly connect South America to Europe via the Atlantic Ocean. However, it was not possible for it to have access to this connectivity because it did not have its own academic network. This meant that Cape Verde did not qualify to make use of fiber pairs from the BELLA Project (Building the Europe Link to Latin America), for collaboration between the two regions.
