Any society with a vision knows that the empowerment of women is one of the most efficient paths for development. Simply because justice between the sexes implies that we all have the opportunity to develop and apply our capabilities to their fullest potential.
The five-year Muva program responds to this desire to grow a fairer society in Mozambique in terms of training and work opportunities for women and men, from a young age. It was officially launched on October 20th in Maputo, celebrating the first chapter of the implementation phase. The program is funded by UKaid (DfID) and managed by Oxford Policy Management (OPM). The launch event brought together guests from the public and private sectors as well as from civil society.
The following projects were presented at the official launch: Muva Tech, created to combat the gender gap in technology across the country; Muva Inovar, to support the Mozambican entrepreneurs; Muva’titude, to develop the skills and abilities of Mozambican youth; And Muva Aprender, to improve the performance of girls in school, including the development of non-cognitive skills.
