Mozambique

Support children and families affected by Cyclone Idai and Eloise

Plan International has been operating in Mozambique since 2006. We ensure marginalised children and young people realise their full potential and contribute significantly to the development of their communities.

To achieve our goals, we place the rights of the child at the centre of our work and partner with like-minded organisations to influence the country's decision makers.

Mozambique has one of the highest rates of child marriage and teenage pregnancy in the world. These issues are related to structural drivers of poverty as well as harmful social norms that prevent girls from realising their rights, including access to quality education and economic opportunities.

In response, our priorities in Mozambique include:

  • Safe and quality education

  • Sexual and reproductive health and rights

  • Climate change adaptation and resilience building

  • Economic empowerment for youth, in particular adolescent girls and women

  • Youth leadership and participation in society

We are currently working in the provinces of Sofala, Inhambane and Nampula. In Sofala, we work in Búzi and Nhamatanda districts. In Inhambane, we are working in the districts of Jangamo, Govuro, Panda and Homoine. In Nampula, we are working in the city of Nampula and districts of Rapale, Mogovolas, Meconta and Moma.
