The SSH Fund assists Mozambican community organizations and groups to develop lasting, self-sustaining projects that benefit entire communities. In Mozambique, the Ambassador’s Special Self-Help (SSH) program started in 1988 and allows the Embassy to respond quickly to local requests for small community-based development projects.
