Summary

85% of Mossuril's 144,000 people are under 25. With 65% illiteracy, no nursery school or youth training and over 80% unemployment, this rural part of Mozambique needs help. The ruin of its former slave prison will become multi-functional as a museum of slavery and a nursery school for 50 local under 5s. And it will also host computer lessons for women and girls as well as a craft center for disadvantaged youths.

Challenge

Mossuril has hundreds of kids but no nursery school. All primary school children are taught in Portuguese - a language few of them understand. There is 65% illiteracy and over 85% unemployment. Due to extreme poverty, there is a lack of computer access and IT skills, particularly for women and girls. And both boys & girls aged between 14 and 20 have little entertainment, education, or skills. 200 pre-school kids, youths, & women will benefit from this project each year

Solution

The nursery school will function in the local language: Macua. But children will learn both Portuguese and some English there. Nutritious snacks will also help alleviate local sub-nutrition. In Macua and Portuguese, 10 groups of 10 women and girls will be taught IT skills and shown how to make a CV and apply for jobs and courses. 65 local youths will get arts & craft training & help marketing their products.

Long-Term Impact

Each class of 27 nursery school graduates will find it easier to learn in the State schools and fewer children will drop-out of the system. Local literacy will be raised. 100 girls and women per year will be able to become entrepreneurs and provide for their families and / or qualify for paid jobs. 65 local youths will become motivated to use local materials to create craft goods to sell, e.g. in nearby tourist hot-spots.
