The appeal was made Wednesday in Luanda by national director for Family Policies on behalf of minister of Social Action, Family and Promotion of Women, Victoria Francisco Correia.
The official was addressing an opening ceremony of National Workshop of civil society organisations meant to strengthen the health system community in Angola".
The National Director said that the civil society organisations represent the so-called 3rd sector of society with a leading role in the context of the exercise of citizenship.
She described these organisations as mechanisms for the active participation of citizens in the framework of modern and democratic societies.
Under the exercise of inclusive and participatory governance, the exercise of governance with its different socio-cultural realities, habits and customs, necessarily entail relationship building with civil society organisations, she said.
However, she added, this certainly promotes the inclusion of all social groups in the different geographic areas of the country, so that their concerns are taken into account by the public authorities.
According to her, the 90 civil society organisations at the workshop will certainly represent a gain for communities, families and especially vulnerable groups such as children, women and the elderly.
