ADAMA Junior is a program enabling Angola's less fortunate youngsters to rise above their station, and mature as well-educated and highly-trained individuals that are able to fulfill their own potential and to the benefit of Angola as a whole.
Angola is recuperating from nearly four decades of a ferocious civil war (1975-2002). Angola has many orphaned children, some of which are homeless and even nameless. As their main concern was survival, the norms of social behavior were pushed aside. These children dream of change, they crave for knowledge and search for new opportunities that will enable them to lead a normal life and allow them to be integrated into society. There is no doubt they strive to become productive citizens and to contribute to their country's welfare.
In cooperation with the Ministry of Public Administration, Employment and Social Security, this initiative has been launched successfully.
