Unlike many other countries in Africa, there are few child sponsor programs in Angola, however there remain real issues with most children not having access to education and the levels of child malnutrition there at 45% are today the worst seen in Africa in the past decade. Emotionally around half of all children in the worst war torn areas of Angola have been shot at, lost their homes, or seen neighbours and members of their families killed.


Life expectancy for each child in Angola is just 48yrs and one in five doesn't reach their fifth birthday not least because over half of all children in Angola live below the poverty line. Just 51% of the child population has access to safe water supplies and 16% of all children are underweight. Whilst literacy rates are generally high amongst males (82.1%) they drop alarming for girls (53.8%) reflecting the number of girls who drop out of education at an early age. This gender discrepancy reflects a cultural norm in Angola that "boys study, girls cook", although in education at least this mentality is slowly developing towards gender equality. Spending on education in Angola is 2.5% of GDP compared with 5.3% in the UK, 5.7% in the US and 5.3% in South Africa.


The country is also affected by periodic droughts which affects crop production and food security. There are currently half a million in food insecurity leading to many admissions of severely malnourished children in Angola’s therapeutic feeding centres, particularly in Huambo, Bié and Kwanza Sul. Child sponsor programs in Angola focus on the building of community schools and heath centres focussing on vaccination prevention programs such as malaria, a major cause of child mortality, and also developing HIV/nutrition awareness. Other programs include working with child AIDs orphans and family strengthening programmes. You can help when you sponsor a child in Angola.
