de femmes ont été choisies pour des postes de responsabilité dans leurs communautés


de personnes vivent dans des communautés ayant déclaré publiquement leur abandon de l’excision


communautés ont déclaré publiquement que leurs filles ne se marieraient pas avant l’âge de 18 ans

Le modèle Tostan

Nous réalisons sur trois ans un programme d’éducation non-formelle, qui facilite le changement social et qui permet aux communautés de devenir actrices de leur propre développement. Le Programme de Renforcement des Capacités Communautaires est :


Basé sur les droits humains

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


Respectueux et participatif

L’information est partagée sans jugement de valeur


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.

"I am a project officer at Maison de la Gare in Senegal. I am very honored to have had the chance to attend this training. Tostan was able to show us simple concepts that we can adopt to truly have an impact in our organisations and communities. Listening to others, knowing how to communicate effectively, and creating a common vision are some of these concepts. This experience also helped reinforce my ideas for my own professional and personal goal setting. I learned about others and myself. For example, I really appreciated what I learned about sensitivity to others. My colleagues and I are already sensitive and respectful people because of the nature of our work with street children but the way we interact with each other sometimes gets lost with all the effort we have to put in for our shared work. Therefore, taking what I have learned at Tostan, I want to facilitate team-building exercises with my colleagues to encourage our working better with one another. I am truly very touched to have been a part of this training!” - Ndeye Diodio Calloga #DignityforAll ... See MoreSee Less

"I represent the Child Youth Protection Foundation in Nigeria. I am based in the capital, Abuja. I am completing the ten-day training at Tostan in Thies, Senegal and I must say that it has been phenomenal. Being in the field of child protection for the past twelve years I have found some new methods through the Community Empowerment Program. I find this to be a revolution in community-based work; the methodologies of Tostan are outstanding, most especially the strategy of organized diffusion which empowers communities to make decisions. It has really touched my heart seeing communities that have been impacted by the Tostan methodology continuing to do work and empower their communities 10-15 years after Tostan. I think the rest of Africa has a lot to learn. Tostan’s theory of community-led change is a theory that many of us in my organization need to learn and get empowered. I was also impacted and motivated by Tostan’s human rights teachings, the positive framing of human rights messages and also giving the communities the opportunities to teach these human rights principles in the simplest ways. I want to say thank you to Tostan for this and I hope to see everyone again soon!" - Olatosimi Adenola Kolawole ... See MoreSee Less

"I am a presbyterian pastor and am excited about the community-led approach used by Tostan. It encourages the community to own their own solutions and to lead the transformative agenda. For me that is important because it is high time stop packaging solutions and dumping them onto communities. These kind of solutions are usually rejected because it is not respectful, and lasting solutions has to do with the development of the human being. As a religious leader I am happy to see how Tostan aligns human rights with religion. Tostan has learned how to show religious leaders that these concepts exist within the religious texts. When I go back
to Ghana I plan to organize a training during the National Women’s Conference so that in upwards of 3,000 women will eventually be trained on how to identify human rights principles within the Bible. I am very excited about the prospect of this training." - Abraham Opoku-Baffour of Ghana #DignityforAll
