The pledge was made by the governor of Bié province, Pereira Alfredo, saying that the local government will build more schools and hire new teachers to cater for the out-of-school kids.

Alfredo, who was speaking at a meeting with the members of the Consultation Council of the Communities held Wednesday in Nhârea,

described the inclusion of children into the education system as one of the  local government's priorities.

According to him, the implementation of the programme will also count on the partnership of private agents.

The governor pledged the construction of additional education institutions and rehabilitation of the schools whose works are at standstill due to alleged lack of funding.

Data released by the education sector in Bié point to over 70,000 children as being out of school till 2015, and in 2018 this number dropped to 41,000 children.
