Description and results


This project aims to reduce the absolute poverty of Mozambican women, men, girls and boys by improving access to quality education. The project represents Canada's contribution to Mozambique’s Education Sector Support Fund, a pooled fund involving collaboration between ten bilateral and multilateral partners and the Government of Mozambique’s Ministry of Education. The pooled fund focuses on a number of issues identified in the Government of Mozambique's Strategic Plan for Education including: access to and quality of education, and improving the institutional capacity of Mozambique's education sector at the central, provincial, district, and school levels. The Strategic Plan for Education involves eight distinct sub-sectors: (i) primary education; (ii) secondary education; (iii) technical and vocational education; (iv) higher education (post-secondary); (v) literacy and adult education; (vi) administrative and institutional development; (vii) school construction; and (viii) cross-cutting themes, such as gender equality, school health and HIV/AIDS, school production and feeding, and school sports.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of December 2013 include: (i) the student-teacher ratio went from 1:74 in 2005 to 1:63; (ii) the gross enrolment rate in secondary education (eighth grade) is 48%, up from 21.4% in 2005; (iii) the enrolment rate of six-year olds in grade one increased from 69.7% in 2011 to 77% (75% girls) in 2013; and (iv) the Ministry of Education implemented multi-year planning in 2012 to improve planning and financial management and progress is being noted with respect to planning and financial management. These have contributed to increased enrolment at all levels and improved delivery of education in Mozambique resulting in Mozambican boys and girls receiving a better quality education that improves their chances of escaping absolute poverty.
