Promoting Active Citizenship

This project, which ended in 2018, aimed to promote the concept and culture of citizenship among 9 to 17-year-olds with a particular focus on Maputo province and Matola District, involving 10 primary and secondary schools.


The project directly reached 1,500 people and indirectly 8,500 people and achieved the objectives of increasing the capacity of educational institutions to educate young citizens to gain awareness of their rights, obligations and risks, such as drugs and alcohol, through training teachers and principals. Young people were empowered to express their views and defend their rights, to engage in local governance and decision-making processes and to seek assistance from relevant organizations and networks to carry out projects and ideas. The project was also involved with existing civil society networks and forums and with the media for exercising and promoting citizenship.
