ACEI Welcomes new Country Liaison for Côte d’Ivoire
ACEI is pleased to welcome Toti Jean-Marc Yalé from the nation of Côte d’Ivoire to our Country Liaison community. Toti is the Founder and CEO of Education and English for You (EEFY), a non-profit organization that fosters education and promotes English language learning for families and children in Côte d’Ivoire.
Through EEFY, more than 300 children from disadvantaged backgrounds have received a formal education. In 2015, with the assistance of the Embassy of Côte d’Ivoire in the United States, Toti was able to repair toilets in six public schools in the southeastern town of Bingerville. With the help of Know My World, a nonprofit dedicated to digital cross-cultural exchange, EEFY promotes digital learning by connecting children in Côte d’Ivoire with children from Canada, U.S., and Mexico.
Toti holds a B.A. from the Faculty of Letters, Art, and Humanity in Felix Houphouet Boigny University and is an alum of the Young African Leadership Initiative in Accra, Ghana.
