Mozambique: Aga Khan Foundation to Build Education Academy
10 October 2011
Maputo — The Aga Khan Foundation is to build a new education academy in the city of Matola in southern Mozambique at a cost of 50 million US dollars. The academy will have the facilities to accommodate 400 students from first to twelfth grade.
The project was announced by Education Minister Zeferino Martins on Friday in Maputo, shortly after his arrival home from a working visit to Kenya.
Martins noted that "the education academy will focus on teaching talented young entrepreneurs, concentrating on entrepreneurial values, leadership and knowledge.
This institution will be open to students from low, middle and high income families. However, destitute students or those with few resources will be admitted on special criteria yet to be defined".
The academy will follow the curriculum of the International Baccalaureate.
Martins was in Kenya at the invitation of the Aga Khan Foundation. During his visit he made a tour of an Aga Khan education academy with similar features to those that will be built in Matola.
