Salesian Missions knows the best way to combat poverty in Mozambique – one of the poorest countries in the world – is through education and skills training. Half the population lives in poverty and a shortage of trained teachers has hampered efforts to open new schools in the past.

Featured Mission

Teach Job Skills to Youth

According to the government of Mozambique, 54% of the population lives below the poverty line.  For youth, job training is key to a better future.

For the nearly one hundred youth, the “Rifugio di Languene,” in the capital of Mozambique, allows them to receive an education and technical training.  At the Salesian Training School in Oamba, youth have access to education and have a home in the student hostel.
