With your continued support our children are striving every day.  The children are adjusting to the change environment from the public school system to the private school system.  This new challenge had initially led to some setbacks, which the children have quickly surmounted.  Success rates are astonishingly positive.  Koro, has come up to the top of her class and Diakassan who had never had the chance to attend school ranked number 4 on her first ever report card.  We care closing the gap for these children thanks to your support.  Our children currently study on the floor at home (see pictures).  Our biggest challenge now is to afford them tables and chairs so that they can study in better conditions.  Thank you for helping us help them.

March is the National Nutrition Month.  We at ACFA continue to make informed decisions to ensure our established sound nutrition habits for the children are supporting our strategy, to develop the children’s body and mind.  This month is the best time to refocus our efforts on improving the children’s nutrient diet, and that is what we are doing.  Small changes such as adding a couple more nutrients to the daily diet, have proved to be more effective than drastic changes.  Enjoy the photos of the children enjoying new diet meal which you have helped provide. Thank you for your continued support.

Changing the course in a War torn Mali

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.
