Cada membro da equipa ADPP traz a sua contribuição única para o desenvolvimento de Angola. Conheça alguns aqui:

Justino Jerónimo, membro do Conselho de Administração da ADPP

O que desejo para o futuro de Angola é o desenvolvimento, com ponto de partida nas pessoas, deve ser sempre sobre as pessoas. Também sonho com educação de crianças, jovens e adultos na tolerância, na cidadania e na preservação do ambiente,

Delfina João, Líder de Projecto, Projectos de Saúde

Minha ambição é ajudar a melhorar a saúde das famílias da comunidade, prevenindo doenças contagiosas e negligenciadas, fazendo planos com elas para alcançar uma saúde melhor e ensinando as famílias como protegerem-se de doenças endêmicas. O meu maior desejo é uma comunidade livre de doenças.

Evaristo Waya, Equipa Nacional de Parceria

Ninguém nasce empreendedor. Aprendi a sê-lo na ADPP e agora contribuo para a expansão de uma cultura empreendedora através do desenvolvimento de competências profissionais que são um veículo para o desenvolvimento sustentável de uma comunidade.

Albino Chio, Coordenação de Projectos, projectos de agricultura e meio ambiente

Eu adoraria ver os Clubes de Agricultores tornarem-se independentes graças à sua própria produção e que os projectos da ADPP continuem a proteger o ambiente, ensinando as comunidades a conservação e o repovoamento de áreas devastadas.

Conceiçao Maria Ngangunga, Directora, Escola de Formação de Professores Cuanza Norte

O meu sonho é transformar todas as escolas primárias nos 164 municípios de Angola em “Outro Tipo de Escola” através do programa de formação de professores da ADPP. A educação científica e tecnológica em todas as escolas do país e em todos os níveis também faz parte do meu sonho.

Duarte Cleofas Manuel, Líder de Projecto, Projectos de Desenvolvimento Comunitário Integrado

Tenho o sonho de transformar comunidades em todo o país, principalmente as comunidades rurais. Por experiência própria, sei que as comunidades não são as mesmas depois de aprender a criar peixes em tanques; depois de aprender a ler e escrever; depois de aulas de nutrição e culinária - elas melhoram suas dietas e valorizam a terra onde aprendem a cultivar os melhores produtos para sua mesa.
