The Mozambique LNG project, operated by TotalEnergies will invest about 450 thousand US dollars in the construction and equipment of the Senga Primary School, as well as in the construction of two houses for teachers, in Palma district, Cabo Delgado province.
The initiative is part of the Pamoja Tunaweza (Together We Can) initiative.
In effect, the school will have four expandable classrooms and an administration block, which includes a teacher's lounge and management offices. It will also include a library, bathrooms, a space for a school garden, and a solar-powered lighting system.
At the recent ceremony to lay the first stone for the construction of the school as well as to inaugurate a water borehole, built with the support of TotalEnergies, the Palma district permanent secretary, Laurinda Luciano, said that water and school were an Achilles heel in this community.
With the existence of a proper school in this community, the quality of education will improve, because studying [as it currently happens] under a tree and outdoors negatively influences the pedagogical performance," assured Laurinda Luciano.
In turn, Maxime Rabilloud, TotalEnergies' representative in Mozambique, said that Senga is a very important community for the Mozambique LNG project, for TotalEnergies, because it contributed a lot to the project.
We are aware of this. So for us to be able to help, particularly in such important areas as water and education, is a great happiness. We are really happy and we will not stop here. We will continue to support the government and the people, particularly the people of Senga,? said Maxime Rabilloud.
On the occasion, TotalEnergies also offered school supplies to 300 children and self-employment kits to residents of Senga.
Pamoja Tunaweza is an initiative to engage various community, associative, public and private actors, with a view to contributing to the socio-economic development of the province of Cabo Delgado, particularly, at this time, in Palma and Mocímboa da Praia, from projects designed in a participatory manner.
