On Monday, December 6, meet our Regional Missionary Catherine Akale and the women coordinators from the Mozambique Annual Conferences – who will share their current work priorities and talk about the challenges of the pandemic. You will hear a real-life story of how a fish farm project fights poverty in the country where over 80% of the population lives on less than $2 a day and how it improves food and nutrition security in rural areas where poverty is greatest.

These are just some of the stories you will hear:

  • Leonanda’s path to independence with the help of UMW
  • 17-year-old Anacleta who walks for 1 hour to gain vocational skills through “The Sewing Project” supported by United Methodist Women
  • Antónieta receiving a food and sanitation parcel through a UMW COVID-19 grant. Now she has soap and food for her children
  • How the Training for Transformation provided new skills and opened new opportunities for young women who are preparing for the future and training other women in their communities.

Join our exciting and insightful talks with women leaders from Mozambique. They have shown bravery and leadership during the pandemic. They find solutions to critical everyday problems and make choices that benefit their families and communities. 

This is the story of United Methodist Women international work and its impact on lives and livelihoods of women and their families in Mozambique.
