Private companies are spending significant resources on social projects in Angola, for the benefit of poor, for general development purposes and for positioning purposes. This study gives a background to and overview of the various "social funds" in Angola and explores the rationale for this spending, the channels and methods used and the amounts spent. It also raises the question whether this social spending adds to the problems of deinstitutionalisation, clientelism and lack of coordination of development efforts in Angola.
