It’s been a year since our orphanage in Bamako, ACFA-Mali, opened its doors to Mali orphans and vulnerable children.  There is a lot to report on!  The children have had a great year indeed!  Their lives changed 180 degrees: they now have a home, a mother and father figure, sisters and brothers, friends, etc…  They’ve completed a whole academic year and have performed well, taken and mastered basketball and taekwondo classes.  On the citizenship side, they have each planted a tree to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Mali’s independence.  Please check out our 2010 Annual Report for more information on our accomplishment.

Sharing a Meal

The children have come out of the malnutrition that they have suffered from the past few years living off of any hand out food they can get on the streets of Bamako.  Now with 3 warm meals a day, and vitamin supplements, they are enjoying a healthy and balance diet, conducive to their physical and intellectual growth.  Additionally, they’ve learned the importance of proper diet, and are practicing such rules as food pyramide into their daily routine.

Mid Year Review

Children at the Zoo
Children at the Zoo

The children are doing outstanding.  They have learned to adjust to their new life, they participated in the Mali's "A Tree for Each Malian for the 50th Anniversary of the Independence".  That's right, each of ACFA-Mali's children actually planted a tree for their country.  Children who were on street only a few months ago begging for spare change to get something to eat, have already started contributing to their countries development, and are learning the virtues of good citizenship. Additionally the children enjoyed the visit during this reporting period of volunteers from the city of Richmond, VA.  They have also been registered to Taekwondo classes.  Enjoyed some of pictures that were taken during their field trip to the Zoo.
