The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) has been working for more than 40 years with its partners on the African continent. In Mozambique, we have been present since 1983. We aim to support the transformation of unjust social and economic contexts and to build conditions for democratic transformative change. The political struggles for the emancipation of the working class and a free society based on solidarity, that offers everyone an equal opportunity for economical, social, and cultural participation, are also inextricably linked to gender justice.
Together with our partners – civil society organizations, social and women’s rights activists, trade unions, academic institutions, and political decision makers – we support the strengthening of a vivid democracy and an inclusive development in all spheres of the society. We collaborate to form progressive alliances that strengthen its members in successfully contributing to the political and economic development of the country. In all our activities, the promotion of gender justice is the base of our work and its ultimate aim. We are convinced that there is no social justice without gender justice and believe that this aspect needs to be the perspective for any political and economic activity.
