Women are particularly vulnerable, especially when they are widows, as this young mother of three reminds us, who has gone through a difficult period since the death of her husband.

Combined with insecurity, climate change continues to increase poverty among vulnerable communities in Mali. This context sometimes leads to food insecurity and other hardships, especially for women living in conflict zones in the centre and north of the country who require urgent steps.

World Vision Mali


In Mali, World Vision uses a community-based approach. Our teams work closely with children, households, communities, local authorities and partners. We listen to families, understand their issues and empower communities with skills and resources that bring lasting change to children.  We also continue to work with communities in the conflict-ridden central and northern parts of the country, contributing to social cohesion and building peace to ensure child protection.

We serve the most vulnerable children and families through a multi-sector programmatic approach focused on: health and nutrition, Water, Sanitation and Hygiene, education and life skills, food security and resilience, advocacy, and child protection and participation.
