With 29.67 million inhabitants, Mozambique presents many contradictions. Despite the period of growth and economic stability achieved after the end of the civil war in 1992, 46.7% of the population lives below the poverty line, surviving on less than $ 0.50 per day, 60% is between 0 and 24 years-old, one out of four young people is a victim of child labour.
In this context, how is it possible to reconcile economic growth, the interests of big investors and the well-being of the population? Together with ACLI, AVSI proposes to focus the attention on youth leadership and dignifying work through the development of a project.
The project aims to expand opportunities for accessing the job market for 125 women and young people with low levels of education and support the formation of a Mozambican ruling class in the political, social, cultural and economic spheres.
- Professional training and support for young people entering the job market
- Launching and supporting of small business activities
- Scholarships to attend international masters courses in Africa and Europe
- Exchanges and internships in international companies and public entities, located in Africa and Europe
125 young people and teachers
