About us

Partners Pays-Dogon arose from the merger of three Dutch foundations that each have been working, for many years, towards the same ideal: contributing to the regional development of the Dogonland. The various experiences of the three foundations now complement each other in an integral approach to our projects.

Collaboration has been a crucial ingredient for all three foundations. And since each has already worked together with ADI (Association Dogon Initiative) in Mali, it seemed a logical next step to also form one single organization in The Netherlands.

Stronger together, Partners Pays-Dogon now work with ADI on the development, implementation and construction of school buildings, educational programs, women groups, heritage preservation, water supply, agriculture, desert-greening and tree-planting.
