    The main objective of the project was to create a group of 50 local teachers – literacy specialists. After finishing relevant formation, they started teaching in 50 centres – writing, reading and elementary information on preventive healthcare. Each of the centres was attended by approximately 25 pupils – children and adults (altogether 1,250 people). The project was carried out in the district of Lebolo, in the Kwanza-Sul province, Angola. Financial resources were used on transportation costs of literacy specialists, small reimbursement for their work and school supplies and equipment (boards, exercise books, pens, chalk). The project was supported by budgetary resources of the Slovak Republic, through the official development assistance programme SlovakAid, in the total sum of 79,268 euro.
