Progresso is a membership based non-profit organization that has been creating opportunities for individuals, particularly women and children, to develop their capacity to undertake interventions that improve their own living standards for nearly two decades.
Progresso supports Mozambique’s national primary bilingual education program by training teachers on bilingual education and by developing all required textbooks and teaching manuals in five local languages, allowing students to study in their mother tongue.
By working with local government, school administrators, teachers, parents and children, Progresso has helped increase pass rates in the two first years of primary school in the Cabo Delgado and Niassa provinces. Consequently, the teaching methodologies introduced by Progresso have been adopted by the national curriculum.
Progresso has improved the quality of education in thousands of primary schools and has been instrumental in the successful implementation of Mozambique’s primary bilingual education program in five local languages. Progresso has been a strong voice in advocating for quality education in Mozambique.
