Ouelessebougou Alliance

The Ouelessebougou Alliance works in cooperation with 25 rural villages in the Ouelessebougou region of Mali, West Africa. Our projects are in the areas of health, education and economic development. The Alliance works with villages based on both their need and commitment to each project and is committed to training and capacity building. In every project, the Alliance is committed to the principles of ownership, sustainability and accountability.

Vaccinations Help Youngest Learners Succeed!

Below are two photos of young children who are already showing academic promise BEFORE they even enter Kindergarten.  Both of these children have older siblings in school and often tag along to learn.  One of the advantages their generation has is the Alliance's vaccination program.

We partner with the local hospital and the Ministry of Health to deliver lifesaving vaccines to rural villages. Our focus is on babies and childbearing women.  Ouelessebougou Alliance Health Agents coordinate the vaccine visits and keep track of each child's vaccination status.  These 2 children are current on vaccines which means they have a much higher chance to remain healthy, stay in school and learn.

 

Give today to make sure our youngest friends in Mali live health, productive lives!

Female Enrollment Increasing Slow and Steady

The number of girls now attending school in OA's 11 schools increased to an all time high of 846 during this most recent school year!  Our work educating parents on the importance of girls attending school continues to make a difference and YOUR support continues to fund educational opportunities for those girls whose familes can't afford it. 

It is our moral obligation to empower these young girls.  But even from a practical standpoint, it makes sense.  An article from November 2013 in The Economist states, "Economists see reducing sexual inequality in education as a vital part of promoting development. The failure to educate girls limits economic growth in the developing world by wasting human capital."

Please continue to invest in these young girl's lives and we'll do our part to ensure that their schools are well-equipped with qualified teachers, books and supplies.

Thank you!

Never Enough Nets

Health Agents Picking Up Nets To Distribute
Health Agents Picking Up Nets To Distribute

We are in the process of creating our budget for the 15-16 program year.  Anounou, our Field Director in Mali, sends me the budget for projects in our villages and there is always a side note next to mosquito nets.  "*There are never enough nets so how many can we do this year?"

With your help, we can reach MORE than 1,134 families this year.  100% of the money donated through GlobalGiving goes to the specific project request.  With each net delivered, a family also receives training on how to properly use the net and follow-up visits to ensure they are using the net.

Please GIVE TODAY to our mosquito net project and help save a child from malaria.  Thank you!
