The Mozambique LNG project, operated by TotalEnergies, as part of its Pamoja Tunaweza (Together We Can) initiative, recently delivered to the Mocímboa da Praia authorities 208 public lighting poles with the respective solar-based lamps and 24 boreholes, 20 of which have been rehabilitated and 4 new.

Carlos Momba, Mayor of the City of Mocímboa da Praia, said: “Today, we deliver it here, and as you can see, this joy is a source of my great pride. In this process of population return, what we, as leaders, were dreaming of, we have achieved today: water and electricity”.

In turn, Maxime Rabilloud, Country Chair of TotalEnergies in Mozambique, said: “Months ago, I came here and saw that the city was empty. The Mayor was here and said: We need TotalEnergies’s help. Please, bring water and light. And then I thought: let’s do this together. For me, the delivery of the lighting poles and water is the most important thing we could do together. TotalEnergies and Mozambique LNG would like to be with you in this initiative [Pamoja Tunaweza].”

“We are grateful, because in the past we suffered a lot to have water. Before we have this system, we had to fetch water from very distant places. We are happy”, stated Mbaraka Abudo, Secretary of the Nadadua neighborhood.

Abdul Sumail, resident in the village of Mocímboa da Praia, said “the advantage of street lighting along the road is to see what’s ahead and what’s happening behind, and light up our entire village with unity”.

From the Swahili expression that means, in English, Together We Can, Pamoja Tunaweza is an initiative of the Mozambique LNG project, operated by TotalEnergies, of engagementof various community, associative, public, and private actors, with a view to contributing to the socio-economic development of the Province of Cabo Delgado, in particular, now, in Palma and Mocímboa da Praia, based on projects designed in a participatory way.
