When a girl gets an education, she's much more likely to get her vaccines, avoid HIV contraction, have access to jobs, earn a higher income, and escape child marriage. When she gets an education, she's able to dream. She's able to think of tomorrow instead of always living just for today. However, many parents in Mozambique don't have the resources to pay for uniforms, school books, or transportation expenses, so their children are unable to get an education, especially their girls.
As Kurandza, we're a small grassroots non-profit that's passionate about empowering women and girls to become leaders in their communities. We do this through working closely with the members of the communities we serve, and our two programmatic focuses are small business development for women and education for girls.
