Overview

Through the Social Charter, the Fundo Soberano de Angola supports social programs and partners with aid agencies through its social impact program that is set out to reach the communities across Angola and other jurisdictions it invests directly.

As a part of this commitment, the Fund dedicates 7.5 per cent of its endowment to social development and socially responsible projects in the areas of education, income generation and off-the-grid access to clean water, healthcare and energy.

The Social Charter aims to ensure that the Fundo Soberano de Angola plays an integral role in nurturing the country’s future by providing the tools for Angolans to participate in the country’s economic growth in a manner that allows them to reach their individual aspirational goals.

The Fund will look to focus on a number of priority areas such as income generation, access to off the grid clean water, healthcare and energy, as well as professional training to ensure the sustainability of its investments

Initiatives

The Social Charter aims to address a number of key social challenges faced by local communities. The FSDEA’s first community program specifically supports the development of advanced education and learning techniques required by students to participate in Angola’s dynamic economic environment.

Kamba Dyami – One Laptop Per Child Program
The “One Laptop per Child” program is a multi-year project, which encourages computer-based learning across schools in the most economically vulnerable areas of Angola. The programme, launched in 2011, has already been implemented in two Schools administered by the Salesian Mission in Angola. FSDEA intends to expand this existing initiative to further rural and peripheral areas of the capital cities of Angola.

From late 2013 to 2015, 1,200 laptops will be purchased, and 2,400 more children will benefit from computer-based learning. The focus will also be on capacity building, which inlcudes curricular updates and continuous training of teachers, who can help develop and further promote computer based learning.

The FSDEA is committed to closely work with the One Laptop Per Child Program and the Dom Bosco Schools Salesian administration to scale up this project, in order to include more schools, more children and more teachers to this program in the future.
The FSDEA continues to identify projects that will form its Social Charter and shall provide further updates in the near future.
