Community Development Project in Coastal Fishing Communities

The fishing villages of Cabo Ledo and Buraco, south of Luanda, are part of a Literacy and Community Development in Fishing Communities Project, which was launched in October 2015.

The project encourages the education of children as well as adults, promotes improvements in hygiene and basic sanitation, and offers courses in entrepreneurship in an effort to strengthen the local economy. Community Agents, literacy trainers and volunteer coordinators, under the leadership of a Project Leader, target 600 households in order to achieve the project goals. Due to be completed towards the end of 2018, the project is on track to achieve the goals set. 581 households were participating, a high of 519 literacy learners attended classes, more than 600 children attended primary school, and the number of people reached by HIV/AIDS, malaria and TB awareness campaigns had surpassed the 50% mark. Drought was affecting tree planting, and the lack of HIV tests reduced activity with respect to this element. Other notable achievments include families building 88 latrines, 169 “tippy-tap” handwashing systems and 313 waste pits.
