We are proud to announce that this year J. Portelli Projects supported a non-profit Organisation, Relationships Inspiring Social Enterprise (rise) which in collaboration with The Community of Ha Sekantši and Possible Dreams Foundation (PDF) funded the construction of a footbridge in Lesotho, an enclaved country within the border of South Africa, thus enabling the community to access essential services required on a daily basis.
J. Portelli Projects contributed to skills development and skills transfer as the community worked with highly experienced construction engineers and expert builders from the Company.
Daniela Gusman, Founder and Director of Rise International explains, “We are so happy that Joseph decided to partner with us and chose to support a project in Lesotho this year as part of their social responsibility otherwise this project would not have been possible…..”

The club, which was established in 1958, competes in the First Division of the Gozo Football League (GFL) and is currently preparing to celebrate the 80th anniversary of its founding. Since its inception, Nadur Youngsters FC – nicknamed the Whites by supporters – has won many titles and honours, including being league champions eleven times; tying first as the top performing club in the history of the GFL.
J. Portelli Projects is not only proud to have their logo emblazoned on the shirts of Nadur Youngsters players, but also in having had a direct involvement in the team’s growth through CEO Joseph Portelli, who was president of the club between 1998 and 2000. As president, Mr Portelli oversaw a milestone victory when the club clinched its fifth league win and his work built upon the successes of his predecessors.
After completing his term as president, Joseph Portelli continued to remain personally active in the running of the football club by sponsoring the team and making it possible for more young people in Nadur to take up healthy living through sports and train football in a safe and professional environment.
In July 2016, Quaint Hotel Nadur, the first location of the chain to open its doors, made it to the Guardian’s best new affordable boutique hotels in Europe and was the only establishment in Malta to be included on the list. The Guardian’s review of Quaint Hotel Nadur highlighted its central location in the Gozitan village of Nadur, as well as its unique aesthetics featuring a 19th-century exterior that is complemented by a slick and contemporary interior.
Quaint Hotel Nadur was mentioned in the UK press a second time when it featured prominently on a list compiled by a The Telegraph’s destination expert of the top 10 boutique hotels around Malta and Gozo.
The list sought to give an insider’s guide to travellers looking to book a room at the best boutique hotels that Malta and Gozo have to offer. Quaint Hotel Nadur obtained a 7/10 rating and was highly praised for its ultra-modern, minimalist interior design, which lends the place an urban feel despite its village setting. Special mentions were also made of the “helpful and friendly” staff who run the hotel, as well as the family-friendly environment, and convenient proximity to Gozo’s best beaches and tourist attractions.
