We completed the farming project with some troubles.  There was a drought in Mali this year and just like all other farmers, our project suffered the effects of the drought.  The harvest was not the greatest because of the drought, but we have made enough harvesting to help support the children feeding.  This will free up scarce resources for other programs such as health care, education etc...  In addition due to the drought, food prices have increased tremendously.  Currently while we are gettting ready for the next rainy season, we are growing vegetables in our garden to feed the children.

Our first harvesting of corn are here.  The children have enjoyed some fresh corn. Please enjoy the pictures of them having a feast over the fresh corn. 

In addition we have harvested 850 Kg of corn.  This represents the orphans annual requirement of corn.  This will be used to cook dinner for the children throughout the year.  More harvesting in the way (peanuts, millet, and beans) and we will keep you informed.  Thank you for your continued support.

As we grow these crop to feed the children, we are also creating jobs in the Samanko 2 community.  This year, we hired the services of over 30 indigenous farmers.

ACFA-Mali's children commenced the academic year on 03 Dec 2011.  The children took summer classes dramatic art classes.  As a result they produced a sketch that explains how important education is for children.  Adama Traore, the oldest child who is 9,stated that he is grateful for the support that he is getting at ACFA-Mali, and that he is now given the opportunity to attend school and will study hard to become "a Mali President one day".  That is a hope that we have been able to instill in the children, thanks to your support.
