The Tostan Model

Our Community Empowerment Program is a three-year, nonformal education program that facilitates community-led development and social progress.

We partner with communities to implement our Community Empowerment Program in six African countries – Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, Mauritania, Senegal, and The Gambia.

We work with communities to strengthen their development efforts through innovative additions and extensions of our core program. These include modules in child protection, peace and security, and early childhood learning.

In response to growing demand for training on our model for community-led development, we have initiated a project to formally launch a Tostan Training Center in Thiès, Senegal in 2015.
