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
