MUVA tests a range of different approaches to the economic empowerment of young women in urban areas of Mozambique. Recognising persistent social norms and other barriers that limit their access to decent work, MUVA develops innovative projects with local partners to build the skills they need to work, the self-confidence and vision they need to pursue economic activities, and to create new job opportunities that match their aspiration and abilities. The project is funded by DFID and runs from 2016 – 2022.
