​Dzima! Pontapé para o Sucesso will equip Mozambique's unemployed, out-of-school youth with life and work readiness skills, complemented by market-relevant career guidance. Funded by Mozal, this sport for development project, whose name translates to "Kick hard! Shoot for success," will use soccer to bring youth together and empower them with opportunities. Dzima! will include lessons from IYF's signature Passport to Success® (PTS) life skills curriculum. To engage youth participants, athletic coaches will deliver core PTS work readiness lessons most suited for the context of play directly on the soccer. Coaches will facilitate complementary interactive lessons in a classroom setting. With a holistic approach, Dzima! will orient youth around locally relevant career paths and available technical and vocational training and higher education options and also offer guidance for entrepreneurial pursuits.
