Tostan Strategy 2023-2030: In Partnership for Community Well-being

Feb 8, 2023

As we look towards our collective ambition to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030, we are excited to share Tostan’s strategy 2023-2030: In partnership for community well-being. On this page you can find a summary of the strategy in English and French, as well as our “Big Picture”: an interactive visualisation of Tostan’s strategy.

Developed through a deeply participatory process with local, national and global collaborators, Tostan’s strategy 2023-2030 has partnerships at its heart. 

Since 1991, Tostan has partnered with thousands of communities, reaching more than 5 million people. Communities who partner with Tostan make major advances to achieve their vision for community well-being. Tostan has also shared the principles of its model with over 800 grassroots leaders and development partners

We are now at a significant moment in Tostan’s history; on the cusp of an ambitious journey towards our mission of dignity for all. 

This strategy to 2030 builds on the power of a respectful, holistic, human rights-based, participatory model of community-led development rooted in African culture. Crucially, it centers on the power of partnerships to bring to a new level Tostan’s contribution to the growth of a movement for sustainable community well-being.

By 2030 we aim to enable breakthroughs in well-being for communities in entire regions of five West African countries, and mobilize a wider movement for community well-being with women and young leaders at the forefront of change.
