Mozambique – Apoio para Melhores Opportunidades para Raparigas (AMOR) Support for Enhanced Opportunities for Girls
With support from Dubai Cares, Plan Canada is implementing the four-year AMOR project, which began in January 2014. This project is part of Dubai Cares' flagship girls' education initiative with Plan. It is designed to enable girls to realize their rights to education, participation and empowerment in Mozambique. AMOR will benefit over 25,000 teachers, and boys, girls and young women from ages 6 to 20 years of age in selected communities in Inhambane Province.
The project will help reduce physical and financial barriers to attending school, improve the quality of teaching and learning, and ensure that primary school environments are safe, supportive and girl-friendly. Through a range of activities, AMOR will support girls and young mothers to complete primary and secondary education, enabling them to delay marriage and pregnancy, and to build their skills, and social and personal assets, to make better life choices as adolescent girls.
