Mali is one of the most deprived countries in the world, it is ranked 5th in 2016 within the lowest literacy rate countries. The fragile and slow recovery of the education system in Mali is a consequence of the 20-year under dictatorship. Furthermore, we identified that 57% of the teachers were not qualified enough to be good teachers (2013).

But that is not all that this West Africa country faced, Mali is land-locked with 57 % of its area in the Sahara Desert. Access to clean water is difficult due to the country’s uneven geographic distribution of water resources. With 30 out of 100 people without access to safe water and 76 out of 100 without adequate sanitation, Mali need an intervention to better its citizens’ life.


Our intervention is IQRA which is an international project based in Mali, West Africa. The project is contained of 3 sub-sections: Education, Sanitation, Environment. Currently, the first 2 elements sub-projects are running.
