Program Areas of ADPP Mozambique
ADPP Mozambique is active in four main sectors, namely: Education, Health, Agriculture and Renewable Energies. A special focus is given to improving primary education through Teacher Training, improving food security and livelihoods in rural areas through the Farmers' Clubs and improving community health through the TCE HIV/AIDS prevention and care Program. All ADPP Programs are based on the holistic development of the local communities, which is seen as the key to reaching sustainable results in each of the program areas.
The overall mission of ADPP Mozambique is to promote the equitable social and economic development of the people of Mozambique, and in particular of those in the most vulnerable position – children, orphans and the rural poor, especially women and girls – in order to ensure that they can participate on equal terms to the development of their country and enjoy their human rights to the fullest.
The strategy of ADPP Mozambique is based on solidary humanism. We work with people and communities on the grassroots level, among the people and with the people. This is done fighting shoulder to shoulder with the poor and through an approach that combines various crosscutting themes, including literacy, health and gender issues.
We at ADPP believe that real change happens in the minds and hearts of people, in the interaction with others and within the social and cultural context of a given community. Every person counts and therefore whole communities are mobilized in order to achieve sustainable results. According to us, development should be seen as a holistic and inclusive process that aims at the overall wellbeing of people and communities on both socio-economical and cultural terms. The central role given to the human in the development process is among the core humanistic values of ADPP Mozambique.See more
