Bonjour, Je suis très heureux d’être ici avec vous pour contribuer à l’amélioration de la justice dans le monde et dans mon pays en particulier, le Mali.

A ce propos, ici au Mali je travaille sur la promotion des droits humains et Etat de droit pour gouvernance locale inclusive et la question de lutte contre la corruption et la paix.

Ainsi, je veux bien être affilié à une organisation ici au Mali pour faire bénéficier la population des activités du réseau !

Au Mali, je tiens à confirmer toute ma disponibilité et mon accompagnement à toutes les organisations Internationales à but non lucratif éligibles et souhaitant mener de programmes de l’amélioration de la justice et la promotion d’accès à la justice des justiciables ainsi que des activités de consolidation de la paix et de citoyenneté.

Hello! Thank you for your kind reply. It’s a pleasure to meet you! I see you are looking for learning exchanges and financial support for your organization. This forum is a great place for ongoing sharing and learning together with fellow members - the best way to benefit is to log in often to read forum discussions.

Access to funding is of course an important priority for many organizations. Opportunities are often shared through the forum, so I suggest you keep a close look at email summaries from the forum and log in regularly, and investigate those opportunities as they come up.

There is a specific Recurring fundraising & grant opportunities for legal empowerment topic with good leads for funding too that you can look at, and contribute to with questions or suggestions for other members.

You can also apply for core membership, a great way to introduce your organization to our team. Here are the details and the application form:
