Welcome to Peace Corps Mozambique!

Since 1998, Peace Corps Volunteers have been working and living in Mozambique, initially with the Education program. Today we continue to have Volunteers working in Education, and they are joined by Community Health Promoters working on projects such as HIV/AIDS prevention and care, support of Orphans and Vulnerable Children, Women's Empowerment and much throughout the country's eleven provinces. Whether you are a prospective Peace Corps Volunteer, a family member, an organization interested in collaborating with Peace Corps Mozambique or just want to learn more about our work, we kindly invite you to explore our website.


Welcome group Mozambique 25!

Peace Corps Mozambique swore in a group of 61 Volunteers on December 1st, 2015 in a first-ever ceremony held at the Ministry of Education and Human Development in Maputo. The new Volunteers completed an intensive ten-week training. They will now depart for Supervisor's Conference and then for their sites where they will teach English, science, and math in secondary schools across the country as well as carry out secondary projects related to HIV/AIDS, malaria, and literacy. Started in 1998, Peace Corps Mozambique now passes a milestone of fielding more than 1,000 Volunteers in both education and health programs.

CONGRATULATIONS to Moz 25 and we wish you all the best in your assignments!
