The Voice4Thought Academy (V4TA) is part of the PGRL programme (collaboration with OXFAM-SNV-CORDAID) that works on the empowerment of youth in political processes in Mali. V4TA has developed and grown this year with success. We started with training the trainers in Bamako, who then went back to their own sites (Bankass, Bougouni, Douentza, Macina) and started branches of the academy.

Working on themes that are related to their realities, the youths acquire and develop their knowledge and learn ways to express themselves as a tool for action to become the drivers of (social) change.

Watch here a recapitulation of the first year of ateliers, research, slam en theater productions, and more:
