Changing the course in a War torn Mali

Well digging operations

Mali is at war for over a week now, but our children have hope because they know that you are with them.  Indeed, ACFA children are doing well and they are continuing with the school, and other activities.  Living in one of the poorest countries of the world, families are struggling even more: lack of resources has rendered a difficult situation even more dire.  The most vulnerable children have faith because of you. 

Thanks to your support, there is hope.  Indeed our expansion project has commenced with our water well digging which was successfully completed this week.  Next, we will be constructing our dorm:  this will allow us to double the number of children that we support by June 2013.  We are there with Mali, and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.  Thank you for your continued support.

1st Quarter Report

Children in front of their new class

The children are adapting to their new private school.  The adjustment took a couple of months, but the December results are promising, with most children progressing in an upward direction.  Three of our children ranked in the top 20% of their classes.  We are implementing a mentoring system with university students.    Thanks to our challenge from the Segal Family Foundation we were able to raise enough funds and are able to commence the construction of Zorokoro Children Complex.  We thank all of our donors for their continued support.  This expansion project will allow us to accommodate more than 100 children, while having a school from grade 1 to 9, a medical facility, a library and computer lab as well as an outdoor and indoor sports and cultural facilities.

1st Quarter Report

This year's harvesting report was great!!!  Almost doubling our last year's harvest, we made a total of 1.4 tons of corn.  This represents more than our children’s current yearly consumption.  This venture allows us to sale excess production and reinvest profits into our children's other nutrition and other needs.  Thanks to our challenge from the Segal Family Foundation we were able to raise enough funds and are able to commence the construction of Zorokoro Children Complex.  We thank all of our donors for their continued support.  This expansion project will allow us to accommodate more than 100 children, while having a school from grade 1 to 9, a medical facility, a library and computer lab as well as an outdoor and indoor sports and cultural facilities.
