Forty women from all over Maputo have just completed a course in dressmaking, embroidery, cooking, food processing and food conservation as part of an initiative of the Mozambican non-governmental organisation Profamilia to boost vocational skills and create income-generating opportunities for women. The idea is that the training will be of benefit to more than just the participants in the year-long course as they set up small businesses and pass on their new skills to others. Profamilia will now turn its attention to members of the Mozambique pensioners association, which will receive training in food conservation.
