Kutsaca Village / Education Center, Life Skills

Kutsaca means “being happy” in Changana, the local dialect in Gaza Province, Mozambique.
The project started as an alphabetization of children from 3-5 years, establishing then a local association that with the support of the local community and partners, built a preschool.It’s a transformation model that consciously promotes collaborative bridges, stimulating solidarity entrepreneurship to the detriment of a model that creates dependency, reinforcing local empowerment of women and children through education, life skills and art activities and micro business.As a seed planted it envisions to generate powerful individual and collective fruits.
