We have been working in the Sahel region of West Africa since the 1970s. The programme in Burkina Faso, Mali and Senegal began with a humanitarian focus, but now includes advocacy work, especially in economic justice and governance, and supporting the development of strong civil society organisations.
Due to rising temperatures which leave many regions more vulnerable to drought and increasing food prices, most Malians face challenges in feeding themselves and their families. The region is affected by natural disasters, such as drought and locust plagues, so our programme still includes a significant amount of humanitarian work.
We work with partner organisations that support families to grow food and adapt their farming techniques to the changing climate, making them self-sufficient and more resilient during food crises. Our partners have also been providing rice and cereal to displaced families.
We are currently updating this page and further information will be coming soon.
