Ambassador Folmsbee launches Two New projects with the YALI-Mali Association

Ambassador Folmsbee, joined by the Malian Minister of Professional Training and Youth and the Minister of Religious Affairs launched two new projects with the YALI-Mali Association (Young African Leaders Initiative). The two projects will be implemented by the alumni of the YALI and Mandela Washington Fellowship programs to reinforce the capacity of Malian youth. The first grant will promote leadership and entrepreneurship among Malian youth and the second project will launch a public health awareness campaign. The Young African Leader Initiative was launched by President Obama to invest in the new generation of young African leaders and we are proud of the dynamic young Malians who have participated in this program since its debut in 2010.
