How has COVID affected Mozambique?

In this episode, recorded on Tuesday the 31st of August, we discuss how our partner universities’ staff and students have coped in the pandemic. On the Friday preceding the recording (August 27), the President of Mozambique announced that face-to-face lessons would be re-allowed at all levels of education after having been banned in the capital Maputo since May, when COVID-19 infection rates were increasing. In rural areas, the restrictions have been slightly lighter.

However, the pandemic is still far from being over, and it has already taken its toll on children, university students, teachers, and university staff. How have the Mozambican education system and teachers coped in the pandemic, and what does the future hold?

In this episode, joining us again are Dr Sarita Henriksen from the Pedagogical University of Maputo, and Roger González Margalef from One World University. Sarita and Roger work as coordinators of the TEPATE project.
