Mozambique

Mozambique bridge

Mozambique is on the south-east coast of Africa and is more than eleven times the size of Ireland.  Despite the fact that the country’s economy is growing rapidly, more than half of the population lives in poverty.  Many face everyday challenges such as accessing basic services, climatic shocks including drought and flooding, and over-reliance on subsistence farming.

We work with the Mozambique Government and a range of non-governmental organisations, supporting programmes that ensure people are better educated and healthier, that farmers can produce enough to feed their families and that people play a fuller role in decision making about their country and its future.
