TİKA Continues to Strengthen Mozambique’s Education Infrastructure

Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TİKA) built a desk production and repair workshop in Josina Machel High School, the largest school in Maputo, the capital of Mozambique, and provided technical equipment.

Lack of desks in classrooms is one of the biggest obstacles to education in Mozambique. Within this framework, the activities to increase desk production continue under the leadership of Mozambique’s President Filipe Nyusi.

In order to support these activities, TİKA built a desk workshop in Josina Machel High School in Mozambique. In this workshop, where vocational training will be given, desks will be manufactured and repaired for the schools in Maputa. Moreover, as part of the project, TİKA provided the consumables and production materials that the school would need throughout the school year.

The inauguration of the workshop was attended by Mozambique’s Minister of National Education Conceita Sortane and Turkey’s Ambassador to Maputo Zeynep Kızıltan. In her speech at the program, Minister Sortane said, “With this project, Turkey showed its support to education in Mozambique once again and made a meaningful contribution to our country. This project will enable the production and repair of desks.” In her speech, Ambassador Kızıltan stressed that the cooperation between the two countries in the field of education should be deepened. Maputo Program Coordinator Ömer Faruk Mergen talked about the important relationship between education and development and said that education is among Mozambique’s priorities.

After the ribbon cutting, Minister Sortane examined the workshop and learned about the workshop and the functions of the machines in detail from the teachers.
