Angola - Giving something back


Giving something back

Despite the improvement in Angola’s economic situation, the country is still much in need of aid. Travellers keen to give something back might like to consider the following:

Development Workshop (Luanda office: Rua Rei Katyavala 13; tel: 222 448 366; email: dwang@angonet.org; www.dw.angonet.org; Huambo office: Rua 105, Casa 30, Bairro Capango; Tel: 241 203 338; email: dw.huambo@angonet.org; Cabinda office: Rua do Timor, Casa 6, Barrio Marien N’Gouabi; tel: 231 220 962; Lunda Norte office: Rua da Emissora, Casa K359B, Dundo). DW is the oldest NGO in Angola and is a non-profit organisation working to improve the livelihoods of the poor in less-developed communities.

Save the Children (www.savethechildren.org.uk) On a national level, Save the Children has a wonderful programme in Angola that is well worth supporting. They’re helping thousands of children go to primary school for the first time; saving tens of thousands of children’s lives by vaccinating them against killer diseases & helping treat children with malaria & diarrhoea; & working with local communities & the government to protect children from abuse, violence & exploitation. In all, Save the Children’s work benefited more than 340,000 children in 2007. One-off or regular donations are the easiest way to support their work.
