Mali workshop report

Mali has ratified a number of international laws relating to the protection of children's rights. However, there is still much work to be done, according to "The National Survey on Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices of Rights of the Child and Women in Mali," which was conducted in 2009 by the Ministry for the Promotion of Women, Children and Family.
The survey results showed that six in 10 children were unaware of their rights and that nine in 10 children were unaware of the presence of laws and regulations concerning their rights.

Under these circumstances, the EYE SEE Workshop in Mali was held with children’s rights as its theme. It provided a valuable opportunity for children to express themselves through the camera lens about their own rights, freedom and social inequality.
(Implementation of the workshop : 2011)
