MNK – MAKASSA


Makassa students seek education 13km away

The community of Makassa is located in the Rapale District of Northern Mozambique, nearly 13km from the city of Nampula. To arrive at the village, you must walk 7km from the main road along a dirt path.

Makassa, like many communities around Nampula, is considered rural and isolated. Houses are made with material that they gather from their surroundings, like branches and woven grasses. The main activity in the community is naturally farming, although the lands in Makassa are not very fertile, but it is the only form of subsistence for the villagers. The families in the community nearly all live on less than $1 per day, consuming the madioca that they produce and earning small wages for producing charcoal. The people of Makassa do not have any source for potable water, and consume from two traditional wells that have not been treated.

The area is largely matriarchal, with most families consisting of children being raised by their mothers as the single heads of their households. Due to the family structure, the children are often expected to help their mothers during the day, making it difficult to continue in school. Attrition rates are very high after primary school, and child marriage is frequent.

The primary school where the children of Makassa study from grades 1-7 is built with interlocking mud blocks, with four rooms.   When they graduate, some students continue to the Secondary School São João Baptista do Marrere, which is 2 hours distance by foot even taking shortcuts through the bush. This project will provide 15 bicycles for students of Makassa to continue in their studies and seek a better future.

This Campaign will provide:

  • 15 Bikes
  • Transport to remote village of Makassa in Northern Mozambique
  • Spare parts and accesories (Led Light, Pumps, tools and patch kit)
  • Basic training for all 15 students on bicycle care and maintenance
