Send 761 Girls to School in Ouelessebougou!

Nov 29, 2011

Enrollment of Girls Increasing

Now more than ever girls are getting an education in 11 rural villages where their mothers have never had the chance to learn. 761 girls are enrolled in school this year in the 11 elementary schools that the Alliance continues to support. It is awe-inspiring to see the excitement that girls have to go to school.

Nationally, in the first and second grades students are taught in their indigenous language, Bamanakan. In grades 3-6 they learn in the language of French in order to communicate with people throughout the country. 1,740 total students in these 11 villages are learning to read, write, do mathmatics, and other school subjects that have been approved by the Malian Ministry of Education.

Thank you for helping to send children to school!
