Meet Madalena from Beira

We’d like to introduce you to Madalena, a mum of two living in Beira, Mozambique. Madalena enrolled in the cookery course at Young Africa Beira in 2019. Before enrolling in this course, she was met with numerous life challenges, especially having to raise two young children on her own. 

Donate to secure the future of youth like Madalena

Madalena was determined to overcome these challenges and so found her way to the Young Africa centre for technical and vocational skills training in Beira. SERVE and Young Africa have been partners for over a decade. Young Africa recognises that many of their students are parents and need good quality childcare to continue their training. And so, they have a creche on site. The creche on site at the Beira campus was built and refurbished with financial support from SERVE. Some of our SERVE volunteers have even worked on doing a lovely painting job at that creche.

While pursuing the cookery course, Madalena also trained in life-skills and entrepreneurship. Young Africa ensures that she trains directly with business owners, which means Madelana is immediately employable after she graduates.

Madalena received a SERVE scholarship to complete the course. She has now graduated from Young Africa and has successfully secured a job.

You must know that donations from our supporters are integral to these scholarship programmes. Your donations help others like Madalena to claim their economic independence.
