Project overview

In Mozambique only 30% of children finish primary education leaving a massive gap in skills and preparation for future employment. This is just one of a wide range of social issues facing youth in Mozambique, since after a bloody civil war the country is still rebuilding.

GDM are using football to drive change in Manica. Their programme integrates community clubs through an inclusive hub for boys and girls of all ages. By providing infrastructure for sport they have created a space where young people gather to learn and to grow.

They are able to reach over 800 youth a year with their sessions increasing gender equality, life skills, and youth employability.
