Mali is one of the poorest countries in the world: over half of its population lives below the poverty line. Those hit first by this precarious situation are children and youth surviving on the streets. This trend, related to strong urban growth, is concentrated in the city of Bamako. In high numbers, these children and youth are the victims of social exclusion and exposed to risks to their health and lives.
