Two children share a desk in a class at the Lumege-Canjamba primary school. The area around the school was contaminated with landmines during Angola's long civil war, preventing many children from coming to school and limiting the movement of those who did. The Mines Advisory Group (MAG) cleared the area of mines and other remnants of war allowing children to receive an education safely and for plans to build more class rooms to accommodate an increasing number of students who are arriving under the government's Village Reunification Program, that encourages families living in remote hamlets to move to larger villages so that the government can provide basic services such as education, health care, water and electricity.
