One of the main challenges for youth is capacity building to prepare its entry into the labour market. For this reason, education is one of our priorities in the European Union's partnership with the African continent.
In Angola, we support two essential initiatives to enhance the professionalization of young people in key sectors of Angolan economy, through the promotion of academic cursus and studies. We help creating more opportunities for Angolan youth.
