The Mozambique Education Fund was formed in 1977 to help the young nation of Mozambique in its effort to expand Mozambicans' access to education. The Mozambique Education Fund raised money for books for schools and a national reference center at the Ministry of Education and Culture.

Mondlane); Herbert Description: During the 1960s, Herbert Shore (1922-2004) was invited to develop theater programs at several African universities. His work led to close associations with prominent writers and revolutionary leaders. His most enduring connection was with Eduardo Mondlane (Oberlin Class of 1953), founding president of Frente de Libertacao de Mocambique (FRELIMO). With the help of Mrs. Janet Mondlane and others, Shore collected material relating to Mondlane's life. Eventually Shore donated these materials to the Oberlin College Archives. For his work on behalf of Mozambique, Shore was honored with the Bagamoyo Medal in 1989. He was an honorary member of the African National Congress. Subgroup II consists of the material collected by Herbert Shore relating to Eduardo Mondlane, Mozambique, and Africa. The most significant resource on Eduardo Mondlane in this subgroup is the microfilm in Series 6. This set of microfilm, done in 1996, contains correspondence (primarily post 1962) and writings of Janet and Eduardo Mondlane. Also included is material (1950-1989) including correspondence, publications, and interviews concerning the Mondlanes, FRELIMO, and the Mozambique Institute. Correspondents include George Houser, Herbert Shore, Africa Today editor Edward A. Hawley (who studied at the Oberlin Graduate School of Theology), Oberlin Professor George Simpson, and FRELIMO leaders Uria Simango and Marcellino Dos Santos. Each of the seven microfilm reels includes an inventory of its contents, and paper copies of the inventory are also in this series. Includes material related to the Mozambique Education Fund; on the Catalog/Finding Aid click on Inventory (bottom left) and then on Inventory 1.
