In March 2019, Mozambique was hit by Cyclone Idai, one of the worst tropical cyclones on record to affect Africa and the Southern Hemisphere.

In Mozambique's Sofala and Manica provinces, hundreds of schools have been destroyed. Eight months since the natural disaster, students are learning in roofless rooms or tents.

And with climate change and the growing risk of weather related disasters, teachers are concerned about the future of their schools.

However, all schools built according to the UN-Habitat proposed standards resisted Cyclone Idai, and the organisation is now working to implement these structures in 150 classrooms in the region.
