b-1

Basé sur les droits humains

La connaissance des droits humains et des responsabilités en la matière constituent la base de l’apprentissage

b-2

Respectueux et participatif

L’information est partagée sans jugement de valeur

b-3

Holistique et durable

Notre programme couvre cinq domaines clés et s’inscrit dans une logique de changement durable

Les leaders religieux au cœur du mouvement pour une transformation sociale positive

Depuis 1991, Tostan mobilise les leaders religieux communautaires afin d’appuyer les efforts des communautés contre la violence faite aux filles et aux femmes. De tels partenariats sont au coeur de la stratégie de mobilisation de Tostan dans le mouvement pour le respect des droits humains et pour assurer une vie dans la dignité à des milliers de communautés africaines.

“The communities of Sare Ngai and Kandekunda were in conflict for several years. The conflict is part of the problem of roaming livestock. In effect, one day the cows of a herder from Sare Ngai village broke into the fields in Kandekunda village, causing a lot of damage. This herder suffered the fury of affected farmers. In solidarity, other herders from Sare Ngai organized to fight back. A clash was barely avoided. But since this day, the day villages cut off all contact. Many mediations were attempted both by the administration and volunteers; but in vain. Finally, the peace committee from Passamace Mandinka, comprised mainly of women, intervened to put an end to this conflict.”

Seynabou Ndiaye is the Secretary for the Community Management Committee of Keur Mbaye Seyni, a community that completed the Community Empowerment Program more than ten years ago. Over the years, the community has taken great steps to achieving their long-term vision of well-being, such as bringing water taps to every home in the village, and solar energy. When she reflects on her journey and that of her community, her greatest pride remains being elected as Municipal Councillor to represent her village and its vision at the district level.

“I thanked Tostan because this two days training on Community Development Grants Management (IGA) held in our community. Now Tostan trained me on how to prioritise our development needs and advocate for their implementation from relevant departments and stakeholders such as clean and safe drinking water, health post, a tricycle to carry our sick and pregnant women to the health facility amongst other.

The most important issues here we learnt from Tostan is that, with all these priorities, we will we do as a community towards the attainment of these key issues by our own. This leads us to do activities at our own level through community sensitization and contributions. We now know how to better manage our funds. We have been receiving lot of financial support from partners before, but due to inadequate training and capacity in management, they were not sustained. Now, with Tostan trainings and capacity building of CMCs including myself and team, we can now revolve two Dalasis to ten Dalasis"

-CMC coordinator of Manakoto Keta/Foday (Wuli West, The Gambia) Ms. Nyatou Bah
