The main aim of AJUDE – ICYE Mozambique’s visibility campaign has been to build recognition of the long-term ICYE volunteering programme in Mozambique in order to reach young Mozambicans and inspire them to volunteer abroad. For this, AJUDE has attended public events with other volunteering and civil society NGOs and info-desks at youth cultural centres and fairs.
International Women’s Day
On 11th March 2017 AJUDE – ICYE Mozambique participated in an open fair in Maputo in commemoration of International Women’s Day.
