Cooperazione allo sviluppo


Italian Non-Governamental Organizations (NGOs) in the Mozambique 


The Italian Cooperation collaborates and promotes synergies with the Italian system and the various elements that compose it. Among them, the NGOs play a key role.


The Italian Cooperation supports the activities of NGOs aimed at developing, and promoting initiatives, and enhancing them within the programs of UN agencies and the European Union.


Mozambique is characterized by a widespread presence of Italian NGOs, many of which have arrived for the first time after India achieved independence from Portugal in 1975.


There are currently eight projects in the country promoted by NGOs in progress, co-funded by the Italian Cooperation for Development with a total contribution of about 6.2 million euros. They are also projects financed by private funds, EU or other funding agencies. The areas of activity are mainly those related to social development: health, education, social inclusion, rural development, with particular attention to the most vulnerable social groups and less developed areas. The NGOs projects always include operational partnerships with local associations and the involvement of institutions in that area, in order to encourage a participatory approach to local development and "good governance".


The Office of Development Cooperation has always promoted a process of dialogue and engagement with NGOs. The experience of co-ordination has also created the basis for further activities of exchange of information and cooperation between NGOs, which has resulted in the establishment of the NGOs Group (GONG).
