First Generation Girls Going to School in 11 Rurual Villages

Dear Supporter,

700 girls are enrolled in 11 elementary schools this year due to the Ouelessebougou Alliance's involvement and the donors that have made it all happen! Our staff and board continue to have so much hope for the village children in 11 rural villages. Unlike their parents, these children have access to a school, teachers, and quality learning. The Ouelessebougou Alliance began its role in education in the early 90's. At that point few villages had an education program and the idea of sending girls to school was uncommon and unrealistic. Our partnership with the Mali Ministry of Education over the years has been a great benefit to the teachers in our schools. Our teachers have made great progress over the years as they have learned to transition from corporal punishment and rote memorization techniques to participatory learning in the classroom. 

This year it costs just $20 to give a girl the opportunity to go to school, learn from a trained teacher, and have the supplies needed for quality education! 

Thanks for your support of this important and progressive initiative!

Sincerely,
Jen Beckstead
Executive Director
