Tostan is an international nonprofit organization headquartered in Dakar, Senegal that currently has programming in 5 West African countries. For over 30 years, the organization has been creating different ways for rural communities to take charge of their own development through grassroots educational programming.

Communities who have collaborated with Tostan develop a holistic understanding of how to achieve their vision for well-being by gaining essential human rights knowledge and practical skills – the building blocks for true sustainability.

As a registered Canadian charity, Tostan Canada connects people from across the country who want to support ongoing programming and raise awareness about the amazing transformation happening in rural West African communities.
