AKDN’s activities in Mali date back to the signature of an agreement in 2003. Since that time, activities have grown to encompass cultural restoration and social development projects in Bamako, Mopti, Timbuktu and Djenné, as well as economic development projects. These range from investments in the aviation infrastructure to water, electricity and packaging for agricultural products. Since 2008, AKF has been implementing the Mopti Coordinated Area Development Programme. Benefiting from the multi-input area development approach, the programme combines interventions in health, education, rural development, financial services and civil society strengthening to improve the quality of life for beneficiaries in the Mopti Region, one of the poorest in the country.

The matrone has been trained with the support of the Aga Khan Foundation and certified by the Ministry of Health. More
