French oil company Total has provided $500,000 (€450,00) to support teacher training projects in Mozambican primary schools, the company said on Thursday.
“Support for education is part of our broader social investment programme, which aims to contribute to the sustainable development of our communities,” Total’s general manager in Mozambique, Ronan Bescond, said, quoted in a statement.
Teacher training is part of the Better education project, an initiative already underway and the result of a partnership between the Mozambican and Canadian governments.
Since 2015, the project has supported teacher training institutes in Cabo Delgado, Niassa, Tete and Maputo with innovative teaching materials, as well as encouraging the training of future teachers.
The first phase of the support has already been made available and has enabled the acquisition of more than 110,000 copies of books in Portuguese and five local languages.
The second phase, which is being implemented with the remaining $250,000 (€225,300), was implemented on a digital platform, called e-learning, of the ministry of education to support distance learning.
Total leads the Mozambique LNG Project, the first onshore liquefied natural gas venture to exploit the reserves of the Rovuma basin in the north of the country, starting in 2024 with two liquefaction modules with a nominal capacity of 12.88 million tonnes per year.
The French oil company leads the consortium with 26.5%, alongside the Japanese Mitsui (20%) and the Mozambican state oil company ENH (15%), with smaller share from the Indian ONGC (10%) and its subsidiary Beas (10%), Bharat Petro Resources (10%), and Thai PTTEP (8.5%).Source: Lusa
