Girl MOVE Academy took part in a Webinar organized by Population Council on the theme Adaptations in Crisis: Stress Testing our Intentional Design Model for Girls, alongside other organizations from Guatemala, Bangladesh, Lebanon and Ethiopia that shared their experiences and teachings from their projects during the pandemic of COVID-19.



It’s worth hearing the testimonies of our founder Alexandra Machado and of Director of the programs BELIEVE e LEAD, Katia Almeida to understand the dimension of what is being done in Mozambique and by other organizations that work in the empowerment and education of girls and women in such vulnerable realities. Watch the webinar Adaptations in Crisis: Stress Testing our Intentional Design Model for Girls here from 55 minutes to 1:05:05.

Changemaker more than ever!

“I admit that sometimes I even think that this social distancing has brought us closer to the empathy and responsibility of becoming a united movement of strength, energy and inspiration for the families and communities that live outside the Academy with their challenges, which have become much more global than local.”

Changemaker Lab

Our program CHANGE has INNOVATED once again and this time the innovation is called CHANGEMAKER LAB. A ‘LAB’ to create and test solutions to respond to global challenges that Mozambique faces.

Believe, Lead, Change closer than ever

We taught our Mwarusis our distancing from crowds dance and together we danced in a space so safe that the only noise that could be heard was the connection of our voices. We taught them how to make D.I.Y. masks that they can donate to their families, in case of it being necessary to go out to get essentials.
