About Tunaweza

Tunaweza is a community-driven social and economic development mechanism, composed of community members and leaders, the Mozambique LNG project and local government.

Through its Socioeconomic Development Program (SED), the Mozambique LNG project is implementing several initiatives to consolidate the project’s relationships with its stakeholders. Our approach is based on promoting local socioeconomic development initiatives in a participatory manner to empower ownership.

This mechanism promotes local capacity building and community empowerment, while encouraging trust and collaboration. It has resulted in a vibrant, project-induced and sustainable socioeconomic development movement - under one brand and with a clear relationship between the project and its stakeholders. It is called TUNAWEZA.
