The opening words of the first Executive Director of AMAC, Luis Generoso as he started on 1 March - were to remind us of the key verse, purpose and focus of the Association of Mozambican Christian Lawyers - to seek justice for the oppressed, widow and orphan (Isaiah 1:17)*.
This week AMAC (Association of Mozambican Christian Advocates) went for...
As the year gets into full swing, the board of AMAC (Association of Mozambican Christian Advocates (lawyers)) has taken seriously the Proverb’s call to make plans* - and had a full-day planning session for the year ahead last Saturday. We in the office busily prepared by gathering statistics for everything from clients’ needs to member lawyers capacities, updating accounts and lists of stakeholders to ensure it was all at hand for their discussions.
The new board was elected in November 2016 and includes some new members so it was a first meeting to work together and discuss plans for each area that AMAC works in - legal educations, legal aid, members/...

It was lovely to be home with everyone and I very much appreciated the support and encouragement of the Churches, family and friends who I was blessed to spend time with, thank you so much.
Marie Josée only started with AMAC in June and is the first lawyer...
First of June is Children’s day, a fun day where children are celebrated and we in our AMAC (Association of Mozambican Christian Lawyers) office had balloons - to celebrate day one of AMAC’s newest employee and first qualified lawyer, Marie Joseé. It is a huge blessing to work with her and Leonardo (Law Student and Admin Assistant) in the Maputo office.
Marie Joseé has been an active member of AMAC since she joined in 2015, she has a deep commitment to God, a clear passion for justice and compassion for the disadvantaged. Marie Joseé is also clearly a lawyer - when I arrived in Maputo I asked everyone I met for contact details of Christian lawyers...
