Angola: Luanda Governor Defends Study to Reduce Number of Children Out of School

Icolo E Bengo — The provincial governor of Luanda, Bento Joaquim Sebastião Bento defended Saturday in the municipality of Icolo e Bengo that there has to be a study intended to minimize the problem of children outside the schoolling system.

The official made this statement on the sidelines of an assessment visit to the construction works of schools in the commune of Bom Jesus, municipality of Icolo e Bengo, which in his view should be extended so that it has the capacity to host more students.

The works of the educational institution, which also has a computer room and a canteen, should continue, according to the governor, so that it can ensure better coverage for children at school age.

Bento Bento visited social works underway in the municipality of Icolo e Bengo, one school and a local market with 120 stalls.
