IMANI Francophone in Mali (Report)

Executive Summary

The IMANI Francophone team was in Mali from 26th to 30th September to undertake two major activities: the formalisation of a partnership agreement with a Malian think tank, Centre d’Etudes et de Refléxions au Mali (CERM) and a capacity building workshop for its Malian volunteers. IMANI Francophone works through partnerships in order to make the most of impact. It is in this light that talks of a possible partnership with CERM were initiated earlier this year, July to be precise. The Partnership Protocol, a guiding document that serves as the basis for the partnership was signed on the 29th September 2015. Through the partnership, IMANI Francophone hopes to increase visibility for its activities in the sub-region, more particularly in Mali. As part of this partnership, the two organisations will work in a collaborative manner to promote each other’s interests. In consonance with its mission of promoting civil society and media activism in its countries of intervention (Benin, Mali, Côte d’Ivoire, Senegal, Togo and Burkina Faso) , IMANI Francophone launched on 10 June 2015 a 3-month virtual volunteer programme with the objective of amplifying the voices of youth on issues such as Good Governance, Regional Trade Integration, Corruption, Democracy, Health and Human Rights. In order to get the best out of the Malian volunteers, IMANI Francophone conducted from 29th to 30th September a 2-day packed capacity building workshop on the following topics: Strategies for managing think tanks, Guides for writing articles, Social (media) activism, working in hostile environments media relations among others.  | Download Report here
