In 2012, Mali plunged into war after the secession of the Northern regions and the multiplication of violent extremist groups claiming territories across the country. Since then and despite the June 2015 Peace Agreement, Mali is in a state of crisis, facing refugee migrations, food insecurity, and violence perpetrated by militias.

We started working in Mali in 2014, as part of a Sahel-wide strategy. With journalists, former prisoners, students, and teachers, we strive to build positive youth leadership, good governance, social cohesion, and sustainable development.
