Master Craftsmen Training

Master Craftsmen Training Project I & II

Mali - Lux-Development - 2011-2012

Mali has a large and rich experience in the transmission of crafts and professions. Its origins come from a traditional society in which acquiring practical skills is the only way of professional training. Within this society, learning has its cultural roots and is supported at all levels of social organization, family, clan, tribe, village, etc.

Knowledge and expertise are hand over to the next generation by mimicry. Production is essentially craft-type and evolution of knowledge and techniques are evolving slowly.
