Grant for accelerating women and girls rights in Mozambique

Beneficiary: ActionAid Mozambique

Budget: 400.000 euro

The "Accelerating women and girls rights" project of the NGO ActionAid Mozambique wants to increase the resilience of young girls and women. This by informing them of their rights  and by teaching them skills to cope in dificult circumstances.

For this project in the districts of Marracuene and Mahiça ActionAid Mozambique works with 24 girls' clubs who in turn work with school councils, parents, religious leaders and multi-sectoral groups. By 2019, more than 20,000 women and girls from these districts should know about their rights in terms of education and sexual and reproductive health, and how they can safeguard themselves against gender violence.

Support for this ActionAid Mozambique project pursues the objective to promote sexual and reproductive health and rights, with special attention to adolescents.
