A Lab to test and DEVELOP solutions 4 good
2020 and the pandemic awoke the need for a systemic and effective change. There’s a new Global partnership in order: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. 17 goals are what it takes to solve Poverty, Hunger, Health, Education, Sanitation, Energy, Infrastructures, Equality, Sustainability and Economic issues.

The call for action is now louder than ever, and we have to work together, to bring new ideas and new solutions to the table and ensure the future of humanity. But these ideas and innovations most of the times, do not reach grassroots communities neither do they solve the problems we witness everyday in Nampula. To change this situation for communities all around the world, we need grassroot implementers!

We need to empower communities so they feel they can be part of the solution, activating local talent and developing effective impact solutions, tested and adapted to real needs.
