Odebrecht International worked in partnership with the Nacala Youth Association (AJN) and People-to-People Development Aide Association (ADPP) to deliver donated items to the communities of Muanona, Naherengue and Mathapue, located near the Nacala International Airport Project. A total of 133 people from 30 families and seven teaching institutions were benefitted.
The utensils – clothing, shoes, books, school material, toys and personal hygiene items – were collected at the end of last year during the Partilhe (“Share”) Volunteer Program, which involves a partnership with the companies Bertling, Interdean, Carlucci American International School of Lisbon and GARP.
The action involved Members from the Odebrecht offices and contracts in Portugal and Mozambique. “The initiative reduces the basic needs of low income children, youth and adults,” said Agostinho Tique, Coordinator for AJN.
In the Moatize Expansion and Beira Port projects, currently being undertaken by Odebrecht in the country, the local communities were also benefited.
