Our 195-member team works to support victims of recent conflict and to defend the rights of people with disabilities.
Today, Humanity & Inclusion is active in the regions of Sikasso, Bamako, Mopti, Timbuktu and Gao, covering a wide range of services: functional rehabilitation, mental health and psychosocial support, early detection and care of disabilities, education on the risks related to explosive devices and assistance to victims of armed conflict.
Teams help improve health centers and the care management of pregnant women to make services more accessible to all. The organization also helps young children with multiple disabilities and severe malnutrition by providing them with holistic care management and assisting communities in implementing stimulation activities.
To provide every child with access to education, Humanity & Inclusion builds the capacities and helps train education staff in the inclusion of children with disabilities, implements awareness-raising actions in communities and supports building transformation projects. In addition, the organization works in the field of economic inclusion to promote access to inclusive employment for young people and to provide support to micro-finance projects.
By assisting community projects and prevention actions, Humanity & Inclusion also works to build the resilience of people at risk of food insecurity and to improve the security situation of communities in the regions of Segou, Koulikoro and Mopti.
