After decades of conflict, Mozambique has progressed toward stability and democratization, but challenges remain. Promoting citizen engagement and social inclusion will require both responsive government and robust civil society participation. Counterpart leads the implementation of the  five-year, McGovern-Dole International Food for Education and Child Nutrition program, Our Bright Future!, in collaboration with partners Associação PROGRESSO, Civil Society Learning and Capacity Building Centre (CESC), and Creative Associates International.  Our Bright Future! (2020 – 2025) will assist the Government of Mozambique to improve health and strengthen the primary education system in 203 schools in Magude, Manhiça, Moamba, and Matutuine districts in the Maputo province.
