Mozambique: President of Islamic Community highlights Pope's message of peace
Thirty adolescents and young people from the Moatize, Angónia, Cahora Bassa, Chifunde, Tete and Mutarara districts in Tete province recently underwent sensitisation training in domestic violence, HIV/Aids, sexual and reproductive health.
The event was promoted by the Foundation for Community Development (FDC) in partnership with the Network Men for Change, with the aim of instilling in young people and adolescents the need to prevent disease and domestic violence and promote engagement in education and other social reconstruction activities.
“We are working with these young teenagers, because ‘It’s easier to bend while it’s still a twig’ [an Aztec proverb]. We want, from a young age, to instil new thinking about preparing a promising future for these young people, based on formal education,” Rui Senda, an HIV/Aids prevention officer at FDC, said.Source: Jornal Domingo
