Angolan Students in Italy Call for More Support

Rome — Representatives of Angolan student associations in Italy Monday called for a review or exemption of fees charged by consular services.

The request was made during a video conference debate under the slogan "Education as an instrument of patriotic elevation" on the occasion of Africa Day, where were presented some concerns of students who, in general, face difficulties of various kinds.

The students asked for further support from the Angolan authorities to alleviate their difficulties, aggravated by the covid-19 pandemic, claiming to have gone through humiliating situations in order not to succumb.

During the event, the scholarship holders also expressed the need for the intervention of the embassy for the return to the country of some finalist students, as soon as the borders are opened.

For her part, Ambassador Fátima Jardim said that efforts are being made to alleviate the situation.

"We have to find comprehensive solutions and not isolated," said Fátima Jardim, insisting on the need for open dialogue, increasingly favoring digital platforms these days.

The ambassador assured the students to do everything with the competent authorities, once the main problems have been identified.
