Challenge

Angola is a country where years of oppression and war left the infrastructure in ruins, where people particularly in rural areas had everything stripped from them. The 27 year civil war left a generation without education, unable to read and write. It is estimated that between 513,000 and several million Angolan children have no opportunity for education.

Solution

Education is the driving force behind any strong economy and a key factor in social and economic growth and well-being. Building schools is a critical starting point to facilitate education. With your help, we can give more kids in Angola the opportunity to receive a quality primary education, giving them a hope for the future. We partner with the Ministry of Education who provides desks, chalkboards and textbooks, as well as hires and pays the teachers.

Long-Term Impact

Education improves health, results in jobs, and empowers individuals. Educated children better understand their rights, advocate for themselves and their families, and are less likely to fall victim to exploitation. Education gives freedom, fostering vision and a desire for change. Educated children are more engaged in community issues, more apt to vote, take action and develop into leaders who tackle problems that impact the future of their country.
