    Fighting for more opportunities women, so that men and women together can build a more just society.


    My name is Delfina Alberto Araújo and I am director of the ADPP Teacher Training School in Cunene. 

    Many people have influenced me in the most difficult moments in the history of our country, people who made me strong and at the same time deepened my understanding of and involvement in the fight to eradicate poverty and illiteracy and eliminate of all forms of discrimination in the search for peace.

    Over the two decades of my professional career as a teacher and school director, I have been presented with immense challenges, including that of being a woman, a mother and a professional. Assuming the three roles is still a daily challenge that I take upon myself with all the associated implications, and little by little the people who work with me come to understand the seriousness and the personal commitment with which I carry out my responsibilities.

    In this same period, working with children and young people, I have learned and am still learning invaluable lessons from them. One of the most important of all is that I form part of their education and am an active participant in the process of their transformation. I have focussed much on gender equality in the enrolment of candidates for teacher training. I was part of the development of a program of interventions in schools to identify and define the barriers to gender equality and the actions to solve the problem. Ten years later I can say that the results are generally positive but that the struggle continues.

    I know that there are numerous challenges for Angolan women wishing to play an important part in the development of our country. I believe that there are women like me in other sectors and parts of Angola fighting for more opportunities especially for women, so that men and women together can build a more just society.
    Happy Women’s Day!
