In 2004, SOS Sahel UK helped its Mali country programme to become an independent national NGO. This is part of its commitment to building a stronger civil society in Africa.
SAHEL ECO is the name of this new NGO. Sahel to indicate a continuing commitment to the arid and semi arid areas south of the Sahara and Eco from three French words which together define the mission of the new NGO: écologie - ecology - better management of the environment; économie - economy - to improve the lives of people living in rural areas; and écoute - listen - by working in close partnership with local people.
