Summary

The children of Tofo, Mozambique are being vilified for playing in the streets and blamed for conflict between the community and tourists. Our team, in collaboration with local people will create a safe space for the children to play and learn new skills in a supportive environment, removing them from unprotected areas. Through fun and educational workshops, children will learn to express their feelings and needs, be mentored in sustainable practices and empowered to have their voices heard.

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 are high especially among girls, and education access continues to be a challenge. In Tofo, the children do not have a space of their own; to play, to study or generally socialise in a safe environment. This coastal town is a hot spot for marine tourism and conflict between the local community and its visitors is often wrongly blamed on the children.

Solution

A play centre will provide a safe, educational and fun place for children to learn, socialise and thrive. Through Expressive Arts workshops, the children will work as a team, grow in confidence, which will help elevate their voices in the wider community. Through Surf Craftsmanship, the children learn how to make wooden surfboards and accessories from natural ingredients, teaching them to respect nature by using sustainable practices and raise awareness about their impact on the environment.

Long-Term Impact

This project is structured in 3 phases. Initially, it will educate and support 200+ children and adults, empowering them to be leaders of positive change within their community. Our long-term goal is to create a self-sustaining circular economy, elevating young people from poverty by removing them from the streets, engaging them in sustainable activities and offering them entrepreneurial, life changing opportunities, which will continuously impact their families' well-being as well as their own.
