High illiteracy in Zambezia concerns authorities, Morrumbala district leads statistics

13 Sep 2023  |  Rádio Chuabo FM
Zambezia province has been plagued by alarming illiteracy rates from 2020 to 2023, with Morrumbala having the highest rates, followed by Maganja da Costa, Lugela, and Pebane. The data was released by Eurico Ernesto from the Provincial Directorate of Education on World Literacy Day. Women are disproportionately affected, with rates as high as 89% in Morrumbala compared to 58% for men. Despite having 1,318 literacy centers and an equal number of trainers across 22 districts, coverage is only at 60% due to set targets. Ernesto is optimistic about reaching the goals by 2025 but acknowledges challenges in hiring educators due to economic conditions and insufficient subsidies. The Provincial Directorate of Education is conducting awareness campaigns to emphasize the importance of literacy.

School for All: Chuabo Dembe Community Calls for the Establishment of a Secondary School

29 Aug 2023  |  Rádio Chuabo FM
The Chuabo Dembe community in Quelimane city, Mozambique, is urgently requesting the government to build a secondary school to reduce the long distances young people travel for quality secondary and pre-university education. Students face exhausting daily commutes to the city center, and during rainy days, the conditions worsen. The community also reports nighttime dangers such as robberies, physical assaults, and sexual abuses. High transportation costs due to poor road conditions add to the challenges. Chuabo Dembe, with over 13,000 inhabitants and only a primary school, seeks the establishment of a secondary school to ensure equitable and safe access to education for future generations.

Population of Icidua requests street lighting along the access road to the city center

15 Aug 2023  |  Rádio Chuabo FM
Residents of the Icidua administrative post in Quelimane city are urgently requesting the local government to install public lighting along the road connecting their neighborhood to the city center. The lack of lighting has led to an increase in criminal activities at night, leaving residents vulnerable. Despite occasional police patrols, the frequency is not enough to deter criminals. The community has been appealing to the municipal government for years to address this issue, emphasizing the need for streetlights to ensure safety and well-being.
