Mali's artisans at the heart of the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

In response to FNAM’s strong advocacy, supported by TSAM project, and with the invaluable commitment of the President of the Republic’s initiative "A Malian a Mask", the artisanal sector actors are mobilizing, through an APCMM - FNAM framework of collaboration. After a delivery of prototype masks designed with Afnor standards, a first government order for one million protective masks is under production by the Association of Cutting and Sewing Professionals, to the general satisfaction. Additionally, more than 400 medical beds (metal construction and welding) and hundreds of contactless handwashing kits (welding) are under production to help Malian’s medical facilities in their effort to manage the pandemic.

A great demonstration of our Malian artisans commitment, autonomy, and know-how!

Our thanks to our employees and consultants working on our Technologies for the artisanal sector in Mali (TSAM) project, for beautifully assisting the National Federation of artisans in Mali (FNAM). TSAM project in funded by Global Affairs Canada.
