Saving Lives

Around the world, 1 in 5 children under the age of five, die each year.  Most of these deaths happen in Africa and many of these deaths could be prevented by vaccinations. Lack of delivery to remote areas and lack of information are major reasons why children don’t receive these vaccines. 

The Ouelessebougou Alliance partners with over 120 villages in the Ouelessebougou region of Mali, West Africa and the Malian government to not only deliver the vaccination to these rural areas, but to provide information on their effectiveness and why everyone should be vaccinated. Education combined with the service will make a difference for generations to come! 

A $5 donation fully covers three rounds of vaccinations for one child, which protects agaisnt nine life threatening diseases! With your support, the Alliance can continue to provide this life saving service.

Our goal is to ensure that 95% of children in the region are fully vaccinated!

Your support literally saves lives! Thank you! Iniche!

Mosquito Nets and Malaria

Malaria, a deadly disease transmitted by mosquitos, remains one of the top health concerns for the people of Ouelessebougou, and for people in much of Africa.

One of the best, and most cost effective, methods of protection is a mosquito net.

Insecticide treated mosquito nets only cost $10 and can cover an entire family while they sleep, protecting them while mosquitos are most active. But, when you live on less than $1 a day, $10 can seem impossible.

The Alliance subsidizes the cost of the net so that villagers only have to pay $1. Not only does this give a family ownership of the net, but encourages both maintenance and participation in training - on how to use the nets and on malaria prevention.

We cannot claim 100% success with the nets. No organization can. But, with your help, we can continue to provide the best tools to protect the people of Ouelessebougou. With your help, we can help make it possible for a family to have a mosquito net.

Thank you for your continued support! Iniche!

A Place to Learn

“When girls are educated, societies are transformed. Economies grow, health improves, and everyone benefits.”

            - Girl Rising

We are thrilled about the new school that was built in the village of Famana over the summer! We are incredibly grateful to the donors who made this dream a reality!

Famana has been in desperate need for a new school building and the villagers are incredibly excited about this opportunity! They are committed to making this a long term, sustainable investment with teacher support and PTA meetings. You too can help insure this is a sustainable program by investing in teacher trainings and school supplies.

We are more thrilled to say that this school will educate 130 students and over half of those will be girls! Currently 65 million girls are out of school globally.

Famana’s commitment to education – and girl’s education in particular – is a reminder to us all about the power of one small community working for progress and change. And it is a reminder that your gift goes a long way into securing this progress and change for the next generation.

We cannot wait to see what the future holds for the village of Famana and its students.  Thank you for your commitment to girl’s education!

Iniche!
