Emplacement & Temps libre

Ilha de Mozambique is located about 200 km east of Nampula city, the capital. Declared a UNESCO Cultural Heritage Site in 1992 is linked to the mainland by 1.5 km long single lane causeway, the crescent shaped island measures a mere 2.5km from north to south and is at no point more than 600m wide. Despite of its small size the island support a population of roughly 7000 and as the most important Portuguese settlement on the East African coast for the best part of the centuries, it boast several of the oldest extant colonial buildings in the southern hemisphere.


The workcamp participation fee is strictly US$250 and this covers simple accommodation, food and project expenses during the camp. Please note that this does not include travel expenses to and from the camp, so participants are asked to reserve a small amount of money for transport to the camp and vice-verse. Participants should arrive at least two days before the camp starts for orientation. It is also important to note that project locations may change due to several reasons some within (too few application, massive cancellations or community failing to make its contribution to the project’) and without our control (political instability, natural disasters). All volunteers who want to participate in this project will be invited to attend the preparation session (le week-end de préparation au départ) organised by Solidarités Jeunesses before their departure
