Let me be part of
the Universe

This project aims to promote gender equality in unprivileged areas of Mozambique using astronomy and astronomy-related topics. Activities will take place in provinces including Niassa, Cabo-Delgado, Nampula, Tete and Sofala, where there are high levels of school abandonment by girls.. During these visits, organised talks will introduce astronomical concepts (such as stars, planets, and constellations) to the young pupils. Parents will also be invited to participate for important public talks focused on women in astronomy. Sky observations will also involve the local community.
