Document typeCase study
Most girls in Mozambique do not even start secondary education, let alone complete it. Reasons range from early marriage to the long distances from home to school and economic pressures to help with household chores instead of studying. Oxfam Novib built the capacity of AMME, the Mozambican Women and Education Association, to help girls stay in school through scholarships and training activists to challenge social norms through school and community debates. This case study gives an overview of the programme, including aims, results and lessons learned.
