Angola has suffered almost four decades of war and civil strife resultig in one of Africa’s chronic humanitarian emergencies. In the last few years an Angolan civil society has emerged and together with international partners has been working to build peace and reconstruct the country.

One of the principal constraints affecting the capacity of both Angolan and international organisations involved in humanitarian and development programmes in Angola is the lack of effi cient communications within and outside the country.

The current situation in Angola as in Sub-Saharan African countries is underdeveloped. Only 1.1% of the populations of these countries has direct access to telecommunications facilities, while the average in developed countries is 40.1%.

AngoNet, through the provision and expansion of Internet facilities to Angolan NGOs provides an opportunity to address these constraints. Internet is the cheapest, fast
