The Tomb of Askia

Gao, Mali

The city of Gao, in Mali, was occupied by armed groups in 2012 and 2013, with serious consequences to its cultural heritage. The local authorities and population found themselves banned from carrying out maintenance and preservation of the tomb, which was placed in 2012 on the UNESCO List of World Heritage in Danger. To prevent it from further degrading and collapsing, ALIPH finances a full rehabilitation project.
