PLAN IN MOZAMBIQUE

Plan has been operating in Mozambique since 2007, helping poor children to access their rights to health, education, protection and a sustainable livelihood.

Currently, we are working with the communities of Marrumuana, Madonga and Xuxululo, Magaiça and Guipombo to build and equip 5 schools, which will benefit  2,500 pupils who previously attended lessons under trees  without hygiene and sanitary facilities.

We are also strengthening community based health and supporting the establishment and training of community health committees to become health improvement facilitators in their communities.
