Mozambique: Italy gets children back to school after tropical cyclone Dineo

MAPUTO, MARCH 28 – Mozambican children from areas devastated by tropical cyclone Dineo will be able to return to school. In response to an appeal by Mozambican authorities, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, working through the Italian Agency for Cooperation and Development (Aics), has financed a project to  “Resume access to education”, which shall be implemented by coordinating with Unicef Mozambique.

Initial damage assessment by the Mozambican government estimates that cyclone Dineo affected over 650 thousand people, damaged 2,222 classrooms in 11 districts in the Inhambane and Gaza Provinces, making it impossible for as many as 207 thousand students and 5,500 teachers to access schools.

The project will furnish materials to rebuild school infrastructure that was damaged by ensuing floods and in the meantime, furnish student-kits and waterproof tents to meet emergency conditions and allow classes to resume immediately for approximately 6 thousand students. The operations come as a response to the United Nations’ Flash Appeal that was launched in the aftermath of cyclone Dineo which aims to raise 10,2 million dollars and reach 150 thousand people in the next three months.  (@OnuItalia/VB)
