The Better Way Project is a social endeavor initiated by Fundação Arte e Cultura, Menomadin Foundation’s branch in Angola. The project accompanies young adults at risk, who grew up on the streets or in orphanages, and empowers them to lead independent lives through professional training and financial education.
Angola’s current reality makes it difficult for many young people to leave the circle of street life and orphanages, towards financial and personal independence. Some do not have the necessary education needed to succeed, and many are unable to find proper employment.
The project takes care of and oversees eight talented young adults, who have come out of the orphanage. Under the management of the Foundation’s Social Work Department, these young adults get apartments, jobs, professional training, and financial education tools that will teach them how to manage money and become independent in the future.
