About ADPP Mozambique

ADPP Mozambique is a Mozambican non-governmental association established in 1982 working in the areas of quality education, health and well-being and environment and sustainable agriculture.

At the core of ADPP’s mission is promoting the social and economic development of the most vulnerable people in society with special attention to children, orphans, women and girls. Our vision is to build towards a better future, where every human being, regardless of their gender, race, creed, nationality, and origin, physical or mental state, has the same rights to life, treatment with dignity, rights to expression and choice, safe and secure livelihoods to pursue their dreams and realize their full potential.   

ADPP’s mission is founded on the strong conviction that meaningful development happens in the hearts and minds of people, in their interactions with each other and within their socio-economic and cultural contexts. When people are respected and consulted and when they are empowered with capabilities and options, they become the force driving of the changes in their lives. 

All of ADPP’s programmes use a holistic and inclusive approach that puts people at the centre of their own development. The central role given to people, in particular the most vulnerable groups, is a fundamental value of ADPP towards the achievement of sustainable development. Thus, the focus of the majority of ADPP’s work is at the grassroots level, working among the people, for the people and with the people.

ADPP’s work is fully aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as adopted by the Mozambican Government. ADPP works to:

  • Eradicate poverty (SDG1)
  • End hunger (SDG2) by improving food and income security in rural areas through Farmers’ and Producers’ Clubs
  • Improve health and wellbeing (SDG3) through tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS and, Malaria prevention programs; and through contributions to transform poor nutrition practices while also preventing malnutrition in vulnerable groups
  • Contribute to the achievement of universal primary education (SDG4), through the establishment of teacher training programmes and community schools and efforts
  • Support girls and women in vulnerable situations and gender based violence(SDG5)
