In the province of Huíla and southern Angola more widely, water scarcity and drought are big problems for communities. The integrated social project was begun in 2017 in collaboration with the Angolan Ministry of Energy and Water and Ministry of Health. It aims to provide services in four communities in the province of Huíla and five communities in the province of Namibe. Poor health services have a negative impact on people's living conditions and aggravates problems of malnutrition. That is why we have recently opened a water plant in the village of Kamupapa, in the province of Namibe. The well can pump 5,000 litres of water an hour, has a disinfection system and is linked to the school, the medical centre and the houses of the teachers and nurses living nearby. We also provided the community with a laundry, three public fountains, a trough for livestock and a local solar energy plant.
Rural schools are also part of the ECAP farming project, the goal of which is to improve the local community's skills in the field, particularly among women.
