Angola

Angola, officially the Republic of Angola is a country in Southwest Africa. It is bordered on the south by Namibia, on the north by Congo-Kinshasa, Zambia on the east and the Atlantic Ocean on the west. The capital is Luanda where about a third of the population lives. The Angolan  exclave  Cabinda is located in the north between Congo-Kinshasa and Congo-Brazzaville on the Atlantic Ocean. 

Religion

Christianity is the main religion in Angola at 79%. 41% of the population is Roman Catholic and 38% is Protestant. Since the first contacts with the Portuguese, many people from the different Angolan peoples have been Christianized over the centuries, partly due to the work of the missionaries and missionaries. 12% of the population is not religious and less than 9% has another religion, of which less than 1% adheres to Islam. 

Culture

Angolan culture is mainly native Bantu with Portuguese influences. For example, Portugal and Angola already share the language and Roman Catholic Christianity as the largest religion. Furthermore, there are numerous ethnic communities with their own cultural characteristics, traditions and indigenous languages or dialects such as the Ovimbundu and Ambundu. In addition, these ethnic communities give their own touch to Angolan cuisine, have their own artistic skills such as pottery making or are known for their signature music such as semba, kuduro or zouk. 

Education

It is the right to quality primary education and the right to develop and participate in society.

 

Education is basic to every child's development. Every child has the right to education, yet this is not always the case in Angola. Unfortunately, access to educational opportunities is still very limited for most Angolan children.

Access to quality education is a key factor in enabling children to become active participants in the transformation of their society.

 

Moreover, a large part of the Angolan population lives below the poverty line, which means that many parents are unable to pay school fees.
