Capital: Bamako
Number of communities currently implementing the CEP: 40
Location of Tostan country coordination office: Koulikoro, Mali
Languages offered in the CEP: Bambara
Regions where we work: Koulikoro and Yirimadio (Bamako suburbs)

Partners: Government of Mali, Project Muso, Sini Sanuman, UNICEF

In partnership with USAID and the Government of Mali, we began working in Mali in 2009 and currently implement the Community Empowerment Program(CEP) in 40 communities in two areas of Mali.

Between January and June of 2016, the Community Management Committees (CMC) in Mali conducted 108 human rights social mobilization activities involving 8,856 people, mobilized their communities to immunize 8,621 children, constructed a health hut, improved 485 homes, organized 612 community clean-ups, and facilitated the installation of a banking institution in their community. Seventy eight CMCs formed five federations from 2011 to 2016, which enabled them to collaborate on development projects.
