An uncertain future for most vulnerable children in Lunda Norte
Children running from home, experiencing violence and all kind of hardships are especially most vulnerable and require assistance and help to deal with emotional and mental issues.
Although Angola is the second largest oil-producing country in Africa, many children continue to suffer.
As a child-focused organization dedicated to improving the well-being of vulnerable children, we have been working in Angola since 1989. Our teams of development professions are working to:
- Improve the health and nutrition of children and their families;
- Improve access to water and sanitation facilities;
- Strengthen civil society, child protection and social protection systems;
- Enhance education opportunities and
- Increase family's resilience by focusing on economic development and land tenure.
Our programmes benefit approximately 1 million people each year.
We serve all people, regardless of creed, ethnicity, gender, race, religion and are committed to using sustainable solutions.
The effects of drought are still visible
Angola faced a severe drought that significantly impacted the lives of thousands of people. Large parts of Southern Angola have observed abnormal dryness as it has hardly rained during the last four years. Last year an estimated 1.4 million people were affected by the drought.
