Fatoumata
Fatoumata's Family

Fatoumata’s project almost complete.   We have made all the necessary preparations.  All arrangements have been made in Paris.  Unfortunately due to administrative set back with the issuance of the passport, we had to reschedule Fatoumata’s medical appointments.  But she is still under her doctor’s supervision in Bamako.  Hospital fees have been paid and hotel reservations completed.  Upon receipt of the passports this week we’ll move forward with the visas and the travel arrangements so that she can make her next appointment on time in Paris for her operations.   

Starting at 9:00AM EDT, GlobalGiving will match up to 50%, donations of up to $1,000 made to our project.  Matching will last until funds run out or until 11:59PM EDT.  Please get your donations in early!

Please donate today.  We have raised 58% of the funds needed to fully fund Fatoumata’s operations, travel, living arrangements and medication costs.  Our work is only possible because of your generosity.  Fatoumata is in danger of losing her sight.  Thank you for supporting our efforts towards achieving our mission of helping her keep her eye sight.

First Dorm of Zorokoro Complex
First Dorm of Zorokoro Complex

Your contribution is at work!!!!!!  Construction of the first dorm at Zorokoro is almost complete.  We are on track for a June 2013 completion of our new dorm which will allow us to double the number of supported children.  In the meantime, we are also getting ready for our farming season.  Work is well underway to prepare the farm to receive the seeds at the drop of the first rain.  This year we will be growing corn, millet, beans and peanuts. 

Starting at 9:00AM EDT, GlobalGiving will match up to 50%, donations of up to $1,000 made to our project.  Matching will last until funds run out or until 11:59PM EDT.  Please get your donations in early!

Please donate today.  Our work is only possible because of your generosity.  Mali’s vulnerable children are even more marginalized today due to the country’s insecurity.  Thank you for supporting our efforts towards attaining our vision.

March is National Nutrition Month

Our new water tower

Construction is moving at Zorokoro.  After completion of the well, we now have a water tower, and are shifting our efforts to the installation of the solar powered pump that will allows us to (1) provide water to the children and the community at large, and (2) start building our first dorm.  According to Mali’s interim president, Pr. Dioncounda Traore, in Mali’s crisis women, girls, and children are the most affected groups of the society. We are building the new dorm to increase our capacity and support more vulnerable children. 

Meanwhile, the farming project is also underway and getting ready for a productive season.  We have commenced preparing for the rainy season which will allow us to produce more vital nutritious products for the vulnerable children that we care for.    Thank you for your continued support.
