Seven 2015 Mandela Washington fellows from Mali and former participants made a courtesy call on the Minister of Employment and Vocational Training received on Tuesday, May 27. The visit sought to introduce the new fellows to the Minister with the intent to receive their support. The Minister thanked the United States for this interesting initiative and pledged support and guidance. He also promised to involve the Malian Embassy in the U.S to provide participants the necessary attention during their training in the United States. State television and its second TV channel both covered the meeting.
