46% of the inhabitants (313 million people) of Sub-Saharan Africa live in a situation of dire poverty, on less than 1 euro a day. Only one out of every ten Africans who suffer from Aids get the medication necessary to combat it.
It is calculated that 100 million children throughout the world do not have access to formal education, of which 44 million are found in Sub-Saharan Africa. The role of women in these countries is key to providing the necessary pulse to the economy. However, the majority of them are discriminated against simply for being a woman.
The Montblanc Foundation projects in Africa are centred above all in the areas of education, professional training for women and in health.
