IYCS Africa visited YCS Mali from 3rd to 6th January 2017. This visit was in the framework of our strategy to build the capacities of National Movements and their Leadership, as well to enable as to help IYCS Africa analyze the challenges facing the movement at the grassroots to find effective measures to address such challenges.
During this visit IYCS Africa had a session with the YCS Mali National Team where we did SWOT analysis of the movement in Mali. IYCS Africa also met and discussed with YCS members and some former members; shared experiences with some of the sections which were very helpful for us in understanding the reality of the movement in the Country. IYCS Africa also met with the Secretary of the Mali Episcopal Conference to discuss how the Church in Mali can support the National Team by providing Chaplains and Religious Animators to the YCS Movement.
