DVV International is working in Mozambique since 2008 and officially with offices in Maputo since 2009. It operates at Macro, Meso and Micro levels based on these objectives:

  • Improvement of the expansion of Literacy and Adult Education (AE) systems;
  • Strengthening the capacities of networks and partners;
  • Advocacy for the consideration of Literacy and AE in poverty reduction plans, as well as in local and national budgeting.


Goal and field of intervention

In Mozambique, since 2009 DVV International has been involved in supporting the Ministry of Education and Human Development (MINEDH) in implementing, and in 2015 in evaluating its Strategy of Adult Literacy and Learning. From the start, DVV International aims to contribute to increased quality of training of adult education personnel which in turn will help to increase the efficiency and relevance of adult basic education and literacy. In form of projects in different provinces, innovative practices have been piloted and disseminated through partners based at grassroots level, using literacy a tool for promoting local development and empowerment of disadvantaged groups such as rural women, disabled people and small scale farmers.
