Mali: Reinforcement of Democracy

We worked with civil society and media organizations to consolidate and establish democracy in Mali. For example,

  • We produced radio clips and files about municipal democracy and the designation of regional authorities, the participation of women, essential public services and taxation systems, the division of legislative, executive, etc. authority.
  • We led radio debates with political party representatives, on the function of the public sector, private sector and civil society organizations.
  • We produced regular shows on citizen awareness and education, political literacy, and on individual and women’s rights.
  • 400 journalists were trained in written journalism, electronic media and new information technology.
  • We consolidated information networking capacities of community radios such as Kayira Radio that now has 500 000 listeners.
