About Alternactiva

Popular education for social change

We are an academic-activist organization, created by a group of Mozambicans with an interest in promoting and defending progressive ideals for a society with social justice. We work closely with popular and strategic grassroots movements and formations in the land, environment, work and gender sectors.


Program Areas

Agrarian and Climate Justice

Despite a gradual decline in the share of labor in agriculture, two thirds of the economically active population in Mozambique are family farmers.

Democracy and Citizen Participation

Citizen participation is a cornerstone of democracy as it aims to ensure that citizens actively participate in the public decision-making process.

Labor and Social Protection

Social protection is concerned with preventing, managing and overcoming situations that affect people's well-being, especially in contexts where opportunities for employment and income generation and means of subsistence are limited or non-existent.
