800 farmers successfully passed the courses and expanded and enriched  their own production thanks to the provision of small grants. During the training, they learned  basic agricultural techniques such as crop rotation, fertilization, pest prevention and cultivation of new crops. They also learned how to take care of poultry and livestock and prevent animal diseases. Thanks to the training, their own crops increased two to three-fold. Their families and communities now have access to a nutritionally enriched diet, including protein, and have increased the income and the health status of their whole family.

In five regions of the Bié province, PIN has coordinated community programs dedicated to combating child malnutrition. We have trained 560 community health volunteers in the villages on how to identify child malnutrition and how to properly treat it. We have examined 300 000 children, and more than 40 000 malnurished kids have received treatment thanks to the provided protein supplment feeding. On a weekly or bi-weekly basis, children were checked for case of complications or lack of improvement, and if any problems arose, they were reffered to the Health center unit for malnutrition.

Economic dependency and the lack of knowledge of basic rights and freedoms are among the main causes of high levels of violence towards women in Angola, where the civil war often leaves more women dependent on men. As a result, we focus on raising awareness about domestic violence, violence against women in general, and on legislation and services available for victims and vulnerable women.

People in Need takes part in the management of the educational sector in two Angolan provinces through the project JOGA (Join the Organizational Goals and Activities of Education). The work builds on the assumption that the quality of teaching provided at the primary schools in Bié and Huambo provinces can be enhanced by improving the quality of education management. Planning, coordination, monitoring and supervision in different levels of the educational management units are crucial measures for the system. PIN hence focuses on supporting directions in the organization of education activities.

Construction of schools and teacher training

Type: Education;

A total of 13 new schools provide education to three thousand children who arrive here in the morning, afternoon and sometimes the evening for classes. The capacity of schools in rural areas is immensely overloaded, and there are no other schools close by. Schools are equipped with libraries and basic tools. Teachers, who are often from distant villages or towns, are provided with accomodation. People in Need also built and arranged educational centres, mainly for teacher education, for the four major regional schools.

In the region of Andulo, which is in the province Bie, PIN residents participated by building five wells in the villages.The organization focuses on repairing existing water resources and especially trying to carry out the management of locals and water authorities through caucuses. In the communities, they are implementing administrative systems where citizens can contribute to the repair fund from fees for the use of wells. Educational activities aim to encourage people to use drinking water, even if it has a fee.
