ALG works on a daily basis with a local team in Mozambique composed by 6 Local Partners, one General Coordinator and 15 technicians and moms who ensure ALG’s work on the ground is efficient and reach the highest possible number of families. This year we had a few changes, partners wise, but the new “acquisitions” are amazing.
