Summer Report

This summer CEO Kadiatou Sidibe visited Bamako to spend some time with the children and inquire about the status of the construction of Zorokoro.  The first dorm is now at its final phase and we need help with leveling out the 5 acre of land surrounding the dorm so that the children have a safe playground.  This summer we introduced the children to Incolac, a nutritious powder whole milk available on the market in Mali.  Made from 100% pure cow’s milk this source of vitamins A and D3, calcium and 17 essential nutrients is vital to our children’s diet.  This is supplemented with a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and protein alike.   Mali now has a democratically elected president who will take office on 04 Sep 2013.  Things are moving in the right direction for the country, but the vulnerable children left as a result of the last 2 years turmoil still need help.  ACFA’s answer to these events is to ensure that the Zorokoro project maintains course and stays on track to receive and support more vulnerable children. 

Please donate today and help us ensure that our work continues and that the vulnerable children of Mali are afforded the security of the holistic program that ACFA offers them.  Thank you for supporting our efforts towards attaining our vision.

Zorokoro visit with Fatoumata
Zorokoro visit with Fatoumata

Fatoumata’s project is running its course.  We tackled some administrative difficulties with the French Embassy and are now working on setting up her new appointment at the Necker hospital in Paris for September 2013.  Fatoumata has to be scheduled with a new doctor who is now assessing her medical situation for further operations.  In the meantime, the project is still not fully funded and we would like to see the project fully funded before sending Fatoumata to Paris.     

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.

Moving Forward

Children doing Homework
Children doing Homework

The children are getting ready for the end of the year exams.  While the change from public to private school was a challenge this year, the extra-curricular classes and additional tutors that we hired to help the children in their transition came to fruition.  We have seen a dramatic improvement in the performance of 80% of the children who had faced the toughest challenges.  We are continuing to work with the special tutors to achieve even more success and turn better results by the end of the academic year. 

Starting at 9:00AM EDT on June 12th, 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 Wednesday June 12th.  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.
