CECJ Monseigneur Luc Sangaré
An after school/work study institute for teenagers and young adults located in Bamako, Mali
The Luc Sangaré Centre was built in 2006 on the outskirts of Bamako, the capital of Mali. The centre functions as an after school/work study institute for teenagers and young adults, providing study areas, evening classes, lectures and courses.
In 2010 the Cuomo Foundation supported the funding of an extension to the Centre, a two-storey Building providing two large additional classrooms, a library and video conference centre. Over six hundred students are able to make use of these facilities, all free of charge.
The Cuomo Foundation inaugurated an additional extension of the Luc Sangaré Centre on January 11th, 2014. Since its creation, over 5,000 students have attended the Centre. Those students are mostly students coming from different schools of Bamako, employees or looking for an employment. The daily evening courses, held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., take on topics such as project management, human resources management, computer science, corporate communication and English.
The Foundation also provided funding for educational materials, computers and an electrical generator.
