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.

More Mosquito Nets Needed

In September, Ouelessebougou Alliance delivered 1,000 nets to 16 different villages in the Ouelessebougou region of Mali.  This was our budgeted goal for the year but by no means meets the needs of our village friends.  About 66 nets were distributed per village, meaning there were many families left without a new, insecticide treated net.

According to Anounou, our Field Director in Mali, the best time to purchase quality mosquito nets at a more affordable price is coming up in February.  We'd love to purchase and distribute another 500 nets during this program year.

We appreciate your support and ask you to simply share our project with your friends and family.  Mosquito nets are the best tool we currently have to fight malaria so the more nets we have, the more lives we save!

The Girl Effect

Why all the fuss about getting more girls in school? 

If you educate a girl, you can change the world.  There will be less poverty, fewer cases of HIV, there will be fewer child brides and fewer cases of young girls dying in childbirth.

Education gives girls the power to make choices.  The power to get an education, stay health, marry when she wants to, and have health, happy children when she is ready.

If you haven't alread seen the short video, The Girl Effect, please take a look.

 

The Alliance is proud to focus our education efforts on increasing the number of girls who receive a quality education.

Thanks for joining us in this important effort!

Vaccinations begin soon!

Our vaccination program will kick in to gear within the next month.  We are thrilled to include 23 new villages this year for a total of 121 villages in the Ouelessebougou region of Mali, West Africa that will receive immunizations.

The vaccines prevent against nine diseases: polio, yellow fever, measles, tuberculosis, diptheria, hepatitis A, the flu, tetanus, and vitamin A deficiency.

Our goal this year is to ensure that at lesat 95% of children in the region are fully vaccinated.

We are pleased to partner with the Malian government.  While the govervnment has the means to provide vaccines at no-cost, they are unable to distribute them to rural communities.  In an effort to reach even more people, the Ouelessebougou Alliance plans to train another individual on how to give vaccines.

YOUR support is a life saver. Truly.  Thank you!!!
