A southeastern African country with a population of just under 26 million, most of whom rely on agriculture for their livelihoods, Mozambique faces many economic and educational challenges. A regular contributor to
COL’s budget, Mozambique has worked with COL to expand access to learning for development through
open and distance learning (ODL), particularly open schooling.
