AZLera is a unique education model, driven by the principals of social entrepreneurship, identifying future leaders and creating an environment that motivates and inspires them to learn more, do more, be more.

Projecto Oceano – AZLera’s flagship programme in Mozambique – is working to develop the academic and leadership skills of a selected group of bright and ambitious students on Ilha de Moçambique since 2002. The natural progression of the last ten years’ work is to support our best students into the best universities in the country, empowering them to realise their academic potential in core fields such as medicine, architecture and engineering, and to be a real part of Mozambique’s economic and social development.

We're passionate about our projects and see a key strength as being a progressive grassroots community based project. 99% of our funds goes directly to our projects, which are supported by a small team of passionate professionals, giving their time to build this future.

Unlike many larger NGO's we are flexible and responsive, our funds do not pay for offices and weighty overheads and we are intent on ensuring that the little we have make the greatest impact on these brilliant young lives. We seek to find innovation in education and be at the forefront of new and effective initiatives.

We are looking for forwarding thinking exciting partners, to walk this same journey and partner for a future of change in Mozambique, Africa and beyond. If you share our same vision and passion please contact us
