Association Malienne des Expulsés's mission is to provide necessary assistance help to deportees on return to Mali. They focus on helping deported migrants acquire basic needs, get access to healthcare, reintegrate in society, and claim their rights. They also mobilise for migrant rights at the national and international levels.

They engage in the following activities:

  • Welcoming deportees at their arrival at the airport or train station
  • Providing deportees with medical care, including mental health treatment
  • Helping deportees recover their property
  • Engaging in legal proceedings through international justice institutions aimed at holding deporting countries accountable for violating the human rights of individual deportees
  • Protesting against the state departments of countries whose consulates refuse visas to Malians
  • Creating opportunities for the economic integration of deportees in order to help them become autonomous once in Mali
  • Cooperating with all non-partisan associations for the poor, refugees, and stateless people
  • Developing strategies for non-violent actions aiming at the recognition of the fundamental right of every person to be able to move freely in order to provide for oneself and one’s family, whether ‘here or there’
  • Mobilising a collectivity of support to pressure consulates to deliver visas; and
  • Encouraging and participating in common actions with associations in the ‘Global North’ with the goal of ‘globalizing’ the struggle in a spirit of partnership.
