Challenge

Mozambique has a young and rapidly expanding population and it has one of the lowest literacy rates in the region. School drop-out rates and education access continues to be a challenge. This results in high unemployment and lack of job opportunities. The surfing industry has only just emerged in Tofo and there are no surfboard manufacturers in the area. This workshop can provide a space for young people to learn valuable skills such as craftsmanship and business acumen.

Solution

By offering this workshop to young people in this area, it will remove them from lingering in the streets and help them develop their skills, embrace a new approach to life and earn a living at the same time through selling the products they design and create, along with learning a new profession and promoting sustainable practices by using natural and recycled materials.

Long-Term Impact

This project will educate young people in the community of Tofo, Mozambique supporting them and their families to rise out of poverty. This workshop will promote innovation in the growing surf industry in the country.
