Some of ALG's priorities are local development, local empowerment and local self-sustainability. Therefore, ALG team working on the field is formed only by members of the communities. Meet our teachers Amelia and Florinda, and our cook Deolinda who are everyday in the Pre-School São Vicente Paulo in Chokwé making a difference in our children’s lives. Very recently they have received new uniforms. How beautiful they are!

School Feeding Program

In the biggest ALG program, the School Feeding Program in Manjangue, Chokwé, every day 900 children benefit of a lunch and a balanced and diverse nutrition. Children's favourite day is when the meal includes chicken or cow meat as it is the rarest food in their homes. 

ALG ensures that the children have access to nutritious food rich in proteins so they can grow up healthy.

Graduation day for the local mummies!

After 4 months of learning and practising, the local mummies had a final exam! 17 Mamas put their hands on the dough and their feet on the pedal to put into practice the skills acquired in the courses of bakery and sewing that take place in the ALG Community Centre in Chongoene, Xai-xai.
At the Community Centre we have welcomed the examiners from the Institute of Professional Training and Labour Studies Alberto Cassimo (IFPELAC) who evaluated local mummies' performance and techniques. The 17 Mamas passed the exam and are now officially certified by IFPELAC!
The local mummies have a new skill that allows them to be more independent and ensure their self-sustainability.

Good luck to all Mamas and their future businesses that may arise!

Woman’s Day in Mozambique!

Today, the important Woman’s Day in Mozambique, there are so many brave and hardworking ladies we could pay tribute to in ALG. But we chose one that has been with us for almost 10 years….. and while the older amongst our Local Partners, she certainly keeps it up in dynamism and energy!

Grandma Etelvina gave lessons to very poor children under a tree. With her we built the Escolinha Flor da Infância  pre-school in 2010. Each year, apart from receiving 75 vulnerable children, she also takes our suggestions open-heartedly to give these children a better experience. 
This month we just introduced daily oral hygiene sessions with these beautiful personalised kits for each child.

Upcoming this year will be introduce of a mini-competition among our 3 pre-schools in Mozambique to approach didactic topics like environment and bullying.
Between all this Grandma Etelvina knows the accounts in the school by heart and sends us detailed and precise reports, with the support of young technician Abel.

Who wants to reach the age of 77 with this strength to help others in need?
