Support for women and babies

In 2021, a Maternity Centre was completed providing services for the first time for the women on Idugo. But the needs of women and their babies do not end here. Providing good services requires ongoing support, maintenance, supervision and training. The Foundation is providing transport to the centre health workers to and from town weekly. In the coming months, training is planned for a 10-person Committee to build local maintenance capacity. In addition, a baseline survey is planned to collect data on women’s experiences to be monitored over time with a view to identifying improvements, as well as difficulties experienced by service-users as a basis for future planning and development. For these and other related activities aimed at providing the best possible services to the women of Idugo, we need your support. Please give generously!

Supporting Girl’s Education

Following on from the success of our ongoing Girls’ Empowerment project , the Zalala Foundation will continue to support girls’ education. In the last 2 years, school attendance amongst girls has more than doubled and several are now ready to move into secondary education. But only those whose parents can afford to pay will have this opportunity. The Zalala Foundation has selected six girls with proven capacity and motivation- Noemia, Latia, Antonia, Liliana, Esquitora and Belinha – to continue their studies at a well reputed school in Quelimane town.

– $15 will cover the travel costs for them to visit their families and attend monthly girls association meetings in their communities

– $30 will provide each girl with a starter pack of school materials and additional personal requirements

– $75 will pay the monthly boarding and tuition fees for each girl

– $250 will cover all the costs per girl per term

Any support you can provide will help transform the lives of these girls. By helping them to succeed, they will inspire others to follow suit and the benefits will be multiplied
