Kapasseni Project is dedicated to assisting the regeneration of Mozambique
by providing children and families with educational opportunities, clean
water, health care and spiritual support. The project was started in 1998
by Mozambican refugees Joseph and Perpetua Alfazema, who were living in
Victoria, British Columbia. The Alfazemas have since returned to their
native country, residing in Sena, a town near Kapasseni village.
The all-volunteer Kapasseni Project in Canada works hand in hand with
the Kapasseni Society in Mozambique to assist the village and the surrounding
area. Amazing results have been achieved through dedication and effort
in both countries and through the generosity of many Canadians. Today,
there is a five-room school, a breakfast program, two wells, a health
centre, eye care, HIV/AIDS education, a food orchard, a corn grinding
mill, and a budding community economy. There is energy and hope.
most exciting difference is the brightness of the children. Once withdrawn
and fearful, the children of Kapasseni today are very different. They
are playful and engaging, benefiting tremendously from improved health
and the stimulation of education. In a world so full of devastation
and heartbreak, particularly in Africa, Kapasseni is a place where
life is definitely improving and a new light shines. Come and visit
Kapasseni through our pictures and stories.
