We are honored to include Amadou & Mariam amongst the patrons who support our campaign. Amadou & Mariam

Amadou Bagayoko & Mariam Doumbia are a musical duo from Mali. The pair met at Mali's Institute for the Young Blind in 1977 and found they shared an interest in music. To this day, Amadou & Mariam play an annual benefit concert for the Institute. In 2009, they became the Zeitz Foundation Ambassadors for Culture. In June 2010, Amadou & Mariam appeared in FIFA's World Cup's Kickoff Celebration in South Africa.

In August 2010, Amadou & Mariam added their voices to the cause to combat discrimination and violence against women in Africa by joining the campaign "Africa for Women's Rights: ratify and respect!".
