Project to support the promotion of rights and protection of migrant populations with a focus on gender
The “Kafamuya” (to bring to light, to recognize) project aims to support the protection and defence of human rights in Mali, affirming the need to strengthen social cohesion. In particular, the project addresses the protection of the most vulnerable people in the area of migration, be they women involved in human trafficking, victims of sexual exploitation or gender minorities.
The overall objective of the project is to contribute to the protection and defense of the rights of migrant communities (on the move, refugees/asylum seekers, internally displaced persons) with a focus on gender minorities in Mali. More specifically, the program aims to support the creation of a protection system for migrant communities, particularly gender minorities, by providing them with assistance, integration and an advocacy network in Bamako and Mopti.
Strengthened holistic assistance for the protection and advocacy of migrant communities and their social integration, gender minorities and women victims of human trafficking.
Knowledge of and respect for human rights specific to migrant communities is widespread and known by migrants, national authorities and the general public in Mali.
A network of national and international civil society organisations is established to implement specific strategies for the promotion and defence of the rights of migrant communities, with a focus on gender minorities.
