Luquembo's children need decent health care, and Mr. Pascoal's training is the solution! Make your contribution so that together we can pay for this inspiring Angolan's nursing course!

Mr. Pascoal, a determined Angolan, is a prominent figure in the village of Luquembo, in the province of Malanje. He is a man with crucial responsibilities for the local community, as he manages the agricultural cooperative of Luquembo, an organization that plays a vital role in the livelihood of the population, as the rice produced is not only the main source of income for the population, but also a essential resourse for everyone's nutrition.

In addition to his dedication to the cooperative, Mr. Pascoal also works as head nurse at the local health unit. Once again, an activity of extreme importance for the community, as it provides care and medical treatment to those who need it most, including countless children in situations of extreme poverty. However, there is a challenge that needs to be overcome.

Despite his experience and skills when it comes to healthcare, Mr. Pascoal does not have a formal nursing degree. However, he recognizes the importance of adequate professional training, which would improve his knowledge and skills, and which would allow him to provide even better assistance to his community. That's how he decided to turn to Bonsae, a rice producer in the region and the Luquembo cooperative's biggest customer, to help him set up a crowdfunding campaign, with the aim of raising money to pay for the nursing course.

Mr. Pascoal's determination to pursue this training opportunity is admirable, and an inspiring example of someone who, even facing personal challenges, continually seeks ways to serve his community and break perpetual cycles of poverty. Her dedication to the cooperative and the health unit is remarkable, and the opportunity to take a nursing course will only strengthen her ability to make a difference.

Each contribution, no matter how small, represents a step towards realizing this dream.

In this sense, let's unite to support Mr. Pascoal's crowdfunding campaign, sharing his story, and contributing as much as possible so that he can acquire the necessary resources to take the nursing course, because by doing so, we will be helping strengthen the well-being of the Luquembo community and Mr. Pascoal's ability to be an agent of positive change.

As crianças, a Razão de todo o Esforço

About the author

My name is Francisco Marques, I'm 22 years old and I'm working for a company in Angola in the agricultural sector. This company has a farm in the municipality of Luquembo, Mr Pascoal's residence.

The company I work for buys a lot of rice from local producers to transform it into a finished product, and the main contact with the producers is Mr. Pascoal who facilitates this operation.

Realizing the importance it has for the community and identifying the problem, I decided with the company, to get to work and do everything possible to help.

Schools in Angola start in March, so we want to start the campaign in June so that it ends in December. Not only do we think that a campaign shouldn't take more than 3/4 months, but we also want to have everything ready so that at the end of the year you can have time to enroll, buy the books and prepare whatever you need.
