I help them in my own way – exploring local humanitarian action in Burkina Faso and Mali
This is a joint research report by West Africa Civil Society Institute, Save the Children Denmark, the Global Fund for Community Foundations, STAR Ghana Foundation and the NEAR Network.
The report focuses on local humanitarian action in Burkina Faso and Mali, in particular humanitarian action caried out by civil society organisations and individuals and reflects on how local models for humanitarian action may inform longer term visions for humanitarian aid in these two countries.
This work adds to the emerging bulk of recent reports that look beyond international humanitarian aid and explores how existing models for local humanitarian action and resources support people in crises.
