ABOUT ASSOICATION MALIENNE POUR LA PROMOTIO DE LA JUENE ET DE LA FEMME
In Mali there are high incidents of arranged marriages, hence most women are not encouraged to attend school. This tradition creates a huge imbalance in the society. The association trains uneducated woman and girls on how to become entrepreneurs to uplift their socio-economic status. Life skills programmes are offered and women and are encouraged to become economically independent by receiving training in dress making and cooking. Women are also educated about health issues affecting them such as HIV/Aids.
