Describe the need affecting community
United Methodist University of Mozambique is the first United Methodist Church related of high learning committed to provide a quality education and training to people of all ages, centered in human values. Most of the communities being served by the project are not wealthy and it has been difficult for them to send their children to attend universities due to lack of resources. The United Methodist University of Mozambique aims on providing opportunity for further education, inspired by the lack of qualified people to respond to the needs for development of communities and a country as a whole. Reducing poverty through education is the scope of our project. Since ideas do not come together with resources, the university is facing some challenges especially related to infrastructures and other relevant materials for the kind of activities projected to be carried out at the institution.
