Yehi Community

Conflict in Mali and low rainfall in recent years have contributed to food and nutrition insecurity in Yehi. We have been partnering with them since 2011.

We are working to improve food security by creating community gardens and teaching soil conservation techniques so the land can continue to produce crops. Our current work is also improving the quality of education by training teachers and providing materials to teach literacy.

We have already achieved great things in the Yehi community by teaching mums how to prevent malnutrition and empowering women through savings groups.

We’re working with the people of Yehi to build a community where children thrive.

We’ve been partnering with Yehi for seven years now and are starting to tackle the harder problems such as changing mindsets about the right to education for girls or early marriage. We’re focusing on building skills, hope and opportunity for Yehi community. 

After these projects are complete we ensure all our work is sustainable, and that the community is set up to identify and respond to needs as they arise. We plan for our partnership to continue until 2025 when we will have delivered a multitude of skills and knowledge for the community to continue their own development.
