Mozambique probability to achieve the Millennium Development Goal 2 - "Achieve Universal Primary Education", is low. By 2015, all girls and boys in Mozambique will not be able to complete a full cycle of primary education. Only 50 per cent of children in Mozambique complete primary education. Which means that the rest 50 per cent either dropped out even before they could learn to read and write or will lapse back to illiteracy.
