  • Cheick Modibo Diarra
    A scientist of international repute and NASA manager, Cheick Modibo Diarra is also considered “the pride of Mali and Africa”. His untiring work is guided by his philosophy that education is the key to development. Consequently he created Foundation Pathfinder, which provides science education as a solid base for sustainable development.

    He carries out projects in many countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, organizing workshops, where children learn about the benefits of science to humanity. He shares his valuable experience by participating in numerous international conferences.

    Mr Diarra was designated UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador in 1998. In his capacity as Goodwill Ambassador and President of the Pathfinder Foundation, and in close cooperation with the Arab Gulf Programme for United Nations Development Organizations (AGFUND), Mr Diarra implements the Scientific and Technology Formation Centre in Africa/Mali project which aims at transferring knowledge in order to equip a nucleus of talents with the skills to invent solutions appropriate to Africa.
