Where We Work

Mali

Population: 18,429,893 (July 2018 estimation)
Capital: Bamako
Number of communities currently implementing the CEP: 80
Location of Tostan country coordination office: Koulikoro
Languages used in the CEP: Bambara, French, English
Regions where we work: Koulikoro, Dioila, Ségou, Yirimadio (Bamako suburb)
Partners: Government of Mali, Project Muso, Sini Sanuman, NORAD, UNFPA

In partnership with USAID and the Government of Mali, we began working in Mali in 2009. In 2019, we are implementing the Community Empowerment Program (CEP) in 80 communities, 40 of which are from March onwards. In 2018, the Community Management Committees (CMC) in Mali organized 836 community clean-up days, and CEP participants adopted 3,928 people with whom they shared what they learned in class, through the organized diffusion method. The CMCs mobilized their communities to organize the enrolment of 740 pupils into formal education and the birth certificate registration of 724 children. In Mali, there are currently nine CMC federations, which collaborate on development projects in Yirimadio, Méguétan, Dinandougou, Sirakorola right and left riverbanks, Tougouni, Kaladougou, Nangola-Wacoro, and Benkadi.
