In 2003, Escola Emanuel in Matola, Mozambique opened with eight students, and apart from some home schools, it was the only AEE-associated school in the country. More full schools followed with Academia Acelerada in Maputo (2016), Prestige School in Beira (2016) and Escola de Esperança (2017). Today we are impacting learners across six provinces, reaching approximately 1400 preschool children and more than 1000 learners in schools, literacy centres, partial users and home schools. The successful Early Childhood Programme is delivered in Portuguese and adapted to suit the Mozambican education requirements.
As English is becoming more critical in Mozambique, literacy centres have been opened to assist the communities in learning English. Hlauleka Mission School in Chokwe was the first of these literacy centres to open. By the end of 2017, there were nine of these centres established.
Graduates from AEE-associated schools in Mozambique go on to study at higher and further education colleges in South Africa and Mozambique.
