A Hi Kulene is located about 270 km from Maputo, Mozambique's capital city. In the local tongue, A Hi Kulene translates to "Let's go ahead," which is exactly what the community has done.

Before your partnership, classrooms were crumbling and children were forced to study outside. Illiteracy rates were high and teachers lacked key resources. Pregnant women often went without health care and infectious diseases were common because of dirty, unsafe water. Farmers struggled to improve their income and needed access better tools, microloans and saving services.

Now, new classrooms, health facilities, wells and community groups in combination with training and resources have transformed daily life. Thanks to the generosity of Canadian sponsors like you, life in A Hi Kulene has improved. Children and families have grown stronger and are working together to overcome their challenges. Your support has opened doors that will have a lasting impact for years to come.
