About us

AZLera is a unique education model, driven by the principals of social entrepreneurship, identifying future leaders and creating an environment that motivates and inspires them to learn more, do more, be more.

Projecto Oceano is AZLera’s flagship programme, working to develop the academic and leadership skills of a selected group of bright and ambitious students on Ilha de Moçambique since 2002. The natural progression of the last ten years’ work is to support our best students into the best universities in the country, empowering them to realise their academic potential in core fields such as medicine, architecture and engineering, and to be a real part of Mozambique’s economic and social development.

AZLera is led by a team of professionals based around the world, who want to better the society and environment around them. We keep things simple. We judge ourselves on our performance and provide a unique platform for success. We debate our ideas, plan our own projects, and we look for the right people to help execute our vision.

Free of bureaucracy, governmental agendas and politics we only focus on results, based on a long-term commitment to positive change.

AZLera is a 501(c)3 registered charity in the United States.

Projecto Oceano, Ilha de Mocambique

Projecto Oceano is an education programme for talented and ambitious students living on Ilha de Moçambique, a UNESCO World Heritage site in northern Mozambique. Projecto Oceano’s mission is to create local leaders that will drive Mozambique’s development and produce role models for future generations.

We provide selected students on the island with a variety of after-school learning activities including: community social debates, current affairs classes, language classes, IT, capoeira, monthly publication of community newspaper 'Voz Jovem', art and community projects; the majority of which are organized and led by our core group of Project Members.

We act as a centre of debate and congregation for children and young adults on the island where they are exposed to knowledge and activities unavailable elsewhere in the region. We empower and support the most talented and motivated students to either pursue further education beyond the island or become the teachers of the next generation of Projecto Oceano Members.

We consult frequently with local secondary schools to ensure that our curricula meet local needs, whilst remaining independent of governmental or ministerial influences.
