What is the project aiming to achieve?
In the Kayes region of Mali, the project plans to improve the ownership of the context and issues on gender and youth by local community actors. To this end, the reference situation of the territories in terms of women and young people’s inclusion in governance processes will be established at the outset.
The objective of the project is to promote the political participation and active citizenship of women and young people through digital technology to enable the integration and support of gender and youth issues in local planning.
The setting up of connected spaces and training will enable women and young elected officials, as well as members of civil society (i) to acquire the basic skills and tools to understand their rights and the challenges of their inclusion in decision-making processes, but also (ii) to understand and actively get involved in managing a community and finally (iii) to influence decision-making processes.
The project aims to build a true digital community around the inclusion of women and youth in governance and to promote the integration of their priorities into planning.
Through two 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 large number of people.
Finally, the documentation of approaches and methodologies as 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.
