Global Activism: An Update on the Angola University Project
Angola's 27 year-long civil war ended in 2002. It's estimated that half-a-million people were killed. Hundreds of thousands were internally displaced and the country's infrastructure was ravaged.
Guerra Freitas is originally from the city of Kuito, Angola. He survived a nine month siege on his city but many of his family members did not.
He left Angola and when he came to Chicago he founded ShareCircle. The organization is currently in the process of building a University in the war torn Bie Province.
We also talk with Joyce Hollingsworth, Director of Programs and Planning for the Angola University Project.
