What is the project aiming to achieve?
The objective of the project is to promote the political participation and active citizenship of women and young people through digital technology to promote the integration and support of gender and youth issues in local planning in the region of Kayes in Mali.
The project plans to establish the reference situation of the territories in terms of the inclusion of women and young people in governance processes on the one hand and, on the other hand, to improve the ownership of issues and context on gender and youth by community actors.
The creation of connected spaces and training will enable women and young people to acquire the basic skills and tools to understand their rights and the issues of their inclusion in decision-making processes, to understand and to be actively involved in managing a community and being able to influence decision-making processes.
Digital element description and how it adds value
Through two already existing applications in Mali (MonElu and Xensa), the project will generate greater participation of women and young people in the various stages of the cycle of citizen control of public action at the intercommunal level, the development of community priority action plans for their monitoring and evaluation, by opening up the consultation process to a greater number of people.
Finally, the documentation of approaches and methodologies and their popularisation and adaptation in digital format will facilitate the transfer of skills and allow wide dissemination through the SaheLink digital community, the Democracy Tech Squad network and the Lenali social network.
The project aims to build a true digital community around the inclusion of women and youth in governance and the integration of their priorities into planning.
