Green jobs in Mali : supporting job creation through waste management, Mali

Mali

Titre : Green jobs in Mali : supporting job creation through waste management, Mali

Pays /Région : Mali
Localisation : San in the Segou region

Date : 2020

Présentation
The Norwegian Strømme Foundation combats poverty in eleven countries in West and East Africa and Asia by strengthening civil society, promoting education and improving livelihoods. The Turing Foundation supported their successful speed school programme (accelerated learning for older children) in Niger. In Mali Strømme has been working with the local organisation APSM since 2014 and together they have opened many speed schools, literacy centres and two vocational training centres in San in the Segou region and elsewhere. In 2020 they are setting up a plastic waste processing unit that will be a training place, create jobs and combat environmental pollution. Twenty young people will be taught the processing method and 200 women will be suppliers. The waste will be used to make school desks and benches for new school places. Given the supply of plastic and demand for furniture, Strømme expects to open new units after the first year

Financement : The Turing Foundation is contributing € 40,000 towards this project.
