Our children have benefited from our donors’ generosity which has allowed them to receive a nutritionist well balanced meal plan.  Additionally, thanks to the Google Hunger Relief Initiative, we have raised funds to allow us to double the number of children that we support.  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.

While we are harvesting the crops that will be used to feed the children throughout the year, 2/3rd of war torn Mali, has fallen into the hands of Islamists Extremists.  There are more vulnerable children who are now being hired as child soldiers, so we need to increase our capacity: now, more than ever, helping Mali’s vulnerable children matters.  This is why we are building a bigger children complex to accommodate even more children in need, and support the community at large with health care services, school, library and computer center, as well as multifunctional sport facility.

NEW SCHOOL YEAR REPORT

Because of the military coup, war, drought, and outbreak of preventable diseases, over 400,000 Malians are now displaced internally and in neighboring countries.  The war has added to the country’s food and nutritional crises.  Added to these matters is the high spike of food prices.  According to the government, 31% of Mali population is at risk of food insecurity.  The lack of nutritious meals is prevailing in the refugee camps.  The children of course are the most vulnerable.  Though our children have 3 meals a day and nutritional supplement available to them, because of the crisis, there are more children in need.
