Cuerama Project is the first social responsibility project implemented by the Cuerama Foundation, dedicated to the sustainability of rural areas, in Aldeia Cuerama, 356 km southeast of Luanda, Province of Cuanza Sul, in Angola. Due to the huge repercussions of 41 years of war (colonial followed by civil war) in Angola, local communities have been completely forgotten until today. After the Angolan civil war, an Angolan family found gaps in Aldeia Cuerama, such as lack of access to basic education, hygiene care, health care in general and sanitation. In order to create a network of partnerships necessary for the implementation of its objectives, the following partnership was established between Angola and Portugal.
Private non-profit legal person, governed by Angolan law and whose purpose is to promote, development and support of social and cultural initiatives.
The institution was created by Angolans, after verifying the reality of extreme poverty existing in Aldeia Cuerama. It intends to extend its scope of action to other communities across the country.
Created in February 2020, the Foundation has been developing its work in Angola since 2014.
