Students from Angola

Angola is a country in Central Africa bordered by Namibia in the south, Zambia in the east and the Republic of Congo, The Democratic Republic of the Congo in the north. The country is rich in natural resources: it has large reserves of oil and diamonds, hydroelectric potential, and rich agricultural land. Angola was a Portuguese overseas territory from the 16th century to 1975. Forced labor trade was very much prevalent in that period. Even after gaining independence in 1975, it had been ravaged by a civil war which continued till 2002 leaving the country with lack of resources and poverty to its helm. Like the rest of tropical Africa, Angola experiences distinct, alternating rainy and dry seasons.

Despite the fact that Angola's economy has undergone serious blow , a period of transformation was seen in the recent years proving the country to be the fastest growing economy in Africa and world.

Education scenario in Angola

Before independence, education was mainly carried out by churches and very few Angolans had access to schooling. After independence in 1975, investment in education saw the number of primary schools rise dramatically. However, the long decades of war brought much devastation. Therefore the majority of Angolan children did not attend school in the years before peace came in 2002.

Angola's constitution provides for free primary education from the age of seven. However, schools suffer from a severe shortage of facilities, teachers and materials. The government is trying to address the problem by building new schools and training teachers.

73% of young Angolans (aged 15-24) are able to read and write. However there is a large gap between literacy rates for girls and boys. 81% of young men (aged 15-24) can read and write, compared to only 65% of girls.
