Our employment strategy

It is the determined strategy of Mission Educate, as much as possible, to contribute to the development of the Mozambican economy by employing Mozambicans and other African nationals in our projects and acquiring goods and services within Mozambique. We employ in excess of 120 Mozambican and other African staff.

How You Can Help!

Your support impacts the lives of real people and their families by providing education opportunities.

We know that education is a catalyst that enables people to break free from the poverty cycle.

Your regular giving or once-only donation can help open a classroom door so children can attend school, provide vocational training and employment skills to unemployed young adults or enable illiterate adults to learn to read and write through our education projects in Mozambique.

You can bring hope where there has been despair for generations because knowing changes everything.
