The Women's Voice and Leadership in Mali: "VLF MUSOYA" project is presented by the Consortium formed by the Centre for International Studies and Cooperation (CECI) and the International Development Cooperation Society (SOCODEVI). The project aims to enable women and girls to better exercise their rights and advance equality between women and men in Mali. Recognizing that local organizations defending the rights of women and girls in Mali and their platforms, alliances and networks are key actors in challenging the laws, norms and social practices that perpetuate violations of the rights of women and girls, VLF MUSOYA will support them to improve their power to act and their impact in transforming unequal relationships between women and men.
