We've worked in Mozambique since 1998, building healthy communities and strengthening inclusive education systems. We're currently active in Manica, Safala and Maputo provinces.
We reached 13,601 people with emergency food aid after Cyclone Idai.
Over the next five years, we will enhance the economic empowerment of 3,000 out-of-school girls.
We've trained 536 community volunteers in social inclusion, social accountability and disaster preparedness.
Our health programming in Mozambique focuses on improving young people’s sexual and reproductive health and rights, by challenging harmful gender norms and traditional views of masculinity. In Maputo province, our InterACT project uses interactive radio and listening clubs to engage boys on gender issues, developing their understanding of – and encouraging support for – women’s rights and gender equality.
Working with Light for the World and local partners, our Empowering Adolescent Girls to Earn and Learn (EAGLE) project supports out-of-school girls and young women in Manica and Sofala provinces to enhance their economic empowerment, by improving their access to basic education.
Through accelerated literacy and numeracy classes, girls develop the basic reading and writing skills that they need to benefit from income-generating opportunities. Alongside this, we support young women to gain community backing for their education and economic empowerment.
Over the five-year project, we aim to reach 3,000 girls, 4,000 boys and male relatives, and 28 community teachers.
We work with a number of partners in Mozambique including the UK's Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), the EU, GAC, SIDA, the International Organisation for Migration, BIG Lottery Fund, and MEDICOR Foundation.
Our delivery partners include the Ministry of Youth and Sports, the Ministry of Education and Human Development, the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Action, the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources, and Conselho Nacional do Voluntariado.
