We are a positive, vibrant community of over 1,000 people working towards dignity for all. We are African-based and rely on the diverse skills and passion of our people to help run our programs across Africa, as well as in Europe and the United States. We are a grassroots organization led at a country level by national teams which include dedicated teams of facilitators and supervisors who work directly with our partner communities.
Our core leadership team consists of the diverse international staff at our country coordination offices in Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, Mauritania, Senegal, and The Gambia as well as at our headquarters in Dakar, Senegal and support office in Washington DC, USA.
Our seven-member Board of Directors brings their relevant skills and capabilities to help guide Tostan’s strategic direction. Each board member is selected for a three-year term based on his or her expertise relating to our organization’s needs.
We also partner with our sister organizations based in Sweden and Canada that help to facilitate our work with the diaspora and donors.
