USAID provides lifesaving assistance to Malians affected by conflict.

The Trans-Sahara Counter Terrorism Partnership, a multi-country interagency effort, combats violent extremism in the Sahel region of Africa. In Mali, activities are underway to build stronger, more stable communities, create entrepreneurial opportunities for youth, and reduce tensions that could be exploited by terrorists or insurgents. USAID is training out-of-school youth in Timbuktu, providing quality instruction in literacy, numeracy, life skills, and technical and vocational training.
