Transfer of Knowledge Through Expatriate Nationals (TOKTEN) seeks to utilize the competencies and expertise of expatriate nationals to improve and reinforce the quality of higher education.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

TOKTEN needs to reduce the lack of well qualified teachers to have more competitive students in the international working market. We are in pressing needs of more didactic materials (books, computers, projectors, lab equipment) in order to improve the teaching and training process. The expat nationals and Malian counterparts must work together to carry out research. We need to help the university create a library. So we have an urgent need for the technical skills.

How will this project solve this problem?

TOKTEN utilizes national human resources to deal with the urgent needs of highly qualified specialists and teachers in the University in order to respect the standards of the African Universities. The project organizes teaching and training missions.

Potential Long Term Impact

Aims to provide assistance to the highly qualfied specialists to help solve the problems in the various sectors of the national economy in conjunction with the priorities defined by the government.
