Tuesday, June 7, 2022, in Bagadadji, in commune II of the district of Bamako. The atmosphere is festive at the Place de la République school. There, the President of the Transition, Colonel Assimi Goïta, inaugurated the 200th borehole as part of his social works. This to celebrate the first anniversary of his inauguration as President of the Transition.
The Head of State was sworn in on Monday, June 7, 2021. Solemn enthronement during which the Supreme Chief of the Armed Forces pledged to devote part of his sovereignty funds to carrying out social and humanitarian works for the particularly disadvantaged populations. In this respect, the choice of the School Group: Place de la République is far from accidental.
The symbolism is also considered very strong. Located between the National Assembly, the Great Mosque of Bamako and the Maison des artisans (space called Place de la République), this establishment is the “Boy Elementary School” created in 1905. Some great figures of Mali such as the first president Modibo Keita, the writer Seydou Badian Kouyaté… frequented it. It now has more than 1,200 students, including 700 girls, divided into 18 classes (first and second cycles combined).
This mythical establishment has, on occasion, also served as a framework for the delivery of five vehicles, including two vehicles to the National Federation of Associations of Persons with Disabilities (Femaph), two to the National Office for Pupils in the Republic of Mali (Onapuma ) and one to the Malian Association of the Blind. The Kati University Hospital Center, the Commune IV Reference Health Center and the National Institute of Public Health each receive a generator.
Since then, social actions have continued in other areas. Drilling work also continued. These activities are over, the discount campaigns have resumed. Thus, on Friday July 29, the special adviser to the President of the Transition, Colonel Assa Badiallo Touré, inaugurated 13 new boreholes. All offered to institutions of higher education.
This series of inaugurations begins at the campus of the G-Point School of Medicine. For the benefit of these future doctors, the special adviser inaugurates the 201st borehole. This drinking water supply will relieve medical students. After the campus of the Point-G School of Medicine, Colonel Assa Badiallo Touré headed for the National School of Engineers (ENI). In the courtyard of this training establishment for Malian and African engineers, it is commissioning two boreholes, the 202ᵉ and the 203ᵉ

These hydraulic infrastructures will contribute to the improvement of their living and study environment”, explains his special adviser.
The President of the Transition, Colonel Assimi Goïta, recalled the reasons which led him to initiate these social and humanitarian actions. “We were inspired by this initiative when we were in the theater of operations. During the patrols, we saw villages abandoned to themselves, often without care or food assistance. It is in the light of all these experiences that we (the President of the National Assembly here present and myself) have decided to make our contribution to our populations. And we assure the Malians that the social works will continue until the end of the Transition”. The Head of State made this revelation during the inauguration of the 200th borehole at the School Group: Place de la République.
