Children's education

Queremos darles a miles de niños la oportunidad de un futuro mejor.

All over the world, millions of children live or rather survive on the streets or in orphanages because of conflict, crisis or extreme poverty. Without support, they face endless violence and education is their last priority. The FAMIB Foundation has started to support street and out-of-school children in Mali and the Sahel region. Our work started with a small project for a hundred street children in the Kays region and then in Bamako. Since then, we have become experts in the field of child protection and gender-based violence through our reporting platform.

In Mali, the education system does not currently guarantee the achievement of the goal of universal primary and secondary education. The situation with regard to children outside school is worrying. Although Mali has seen, since 2010, a decrease in the number of out-of-school children of primary school age, the progress observed is weak compared to other regions of the world and especially the Sahel and has stagnated, if not slowed, since 2012. Almost one in four children of primary school age (30%) has never been to school or has left school without completing primary school. The North and Center regions are part of the last 3 regions whose performance is well below the national average. In 2019 the teachers' strike put everything under arrest and COVID in 2020 which destroyed any hope of a return to normal.

Development of the education system

Four Problems

In Mali, the development of the education system is dependent on four major issues:

  • Low access / accessibility to primary and secondary education;
  • Low quality of learning at primary and secondary level;
  • Weak steering capacity of deconcentrated and decentralized education structures;
  • The multidimensional crisis.
  • 1.

    In the chain of living things, all the elements are linked. It is always where the environment is most degraded that the greatest misery is found, especially in Africa. But if we treat humans with respect, by BETTING ON AFRICAN YOUTH, IT IS BETTING ON THE FUTURE OF THE CONTINENT "The proportion of young people in the African population continues to increase. The challenge is already there and it is urgent to respond to it. It is also a development opportunity for the continent, especially in terms of innovation and social transformation. What are the characteristics of youth in Africa, a continent with very strong demographic growth?

  • 2.

    Population growth is indeed still high even if disparities exist between regions. In North Africa and, to a lesser extent, in southern Africa, the fertility rate has declined significantly. It is still around 4 to 6 children per woman on the rest of the continent, or even 6 or 7 in some countries where the demographic transition has barely begun. The growing share of youth in the African population is a very concrete reality. 60% of Africans are under 24 years old.


Already more than 10,000 young people supported in 2020, initiatives and projects are being implemented in Mali to achieve the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).

  • 3.

    By 2050, 35% of young people in the world will be African, whereas this proportion was only 15% in 2000. This specificity is essential for the future of this continent which is the youngest in the world. . employment challenges in light of Africa’s demographic forecasts and economic realities? African demography requires the massive and rapid creation of jobs. By 2030, it is estimated that 30 million young people will enter the labor market each year, or three-quarters of the global inflow of young people.

  • 4.

    This means doubling the number of jobs, that is to say creating 450 million additional jobs while the current labor force is around 500 million. This is a considerable stake because it is considered that the number of jobs created is already insufficient. This gap between supply and demand is likely to widen if nothing is done, which would create situations of great insecurity and unemployment in some regions. This is an All Africa issue: in North Africa, 30% of young people and nearly 55% in southern Africa are already considered inactive. It is therefore essential to boost the labor market, in particular through certain sectors such as agriculture, which is the activity that provides the most employment on the continent, and the services (tourism, banks) towards which people are moving. more and more young people.
