Economic empowerment for youth and adolescents in Mozambique

Supporting youth and adolescents, specifically young women and girls from underprivileged and marginalised communities to have increased economic opportunities through skills training and job creation.

Plan International Mozambique works to provide economic stability in the communities it works with through skills training and development for youth and adolescents, especially those who did not have full access to an education, causing hinderances in their prospects for sustainable and dignified employment opportunities. 

Our economic empowerment projects in both the long-term development and emergency context support vulnerable groups with financial knowledge on how to save money, how to invest and how to make money so they are able to improve their lives and communities. 

These efforts aim to increase the resilience of beneficiaries by improving their standard of living while promoting the overall development of communities in infrastructure, education and decreasing gender disparities.
