New Year, New Vaccination Goals

With July right around the corner, we excited for our new program year to begin.

However it’s important to take a moment to reflect on what Ouelessebougou Alliance -- with your help -- was able to accomplish this past year.

We vaccinated a total of 4,300 children (under the age of 5) and women (of child bearing age) against nine deadly diseases.  

With your continued support, the Alliance can provide even more young children and their mothers with this important service.  We are grateful for our partnerships with the Malian Ministry of Health and the Ouelessebougou Public Hospital who help make our outreach possible.

We are grateful for your commitment and are excited about this new program year!

Thank you!

Iniche!

This Time of Year

It’s almost June which means that in Mali, the rainy season is upon us, and mosquitos are out in full force until October.

But because of you, and your donations, we were able to purchase mosquito nets during the off season – meaning the Alliance and the villagers did not have to worry about receiving enough nets.

Mosquito nets prevent against diseases like malaria and are one of the most effective live saving measures people can take.  In the last 10 years the number of new malaria cases has declined by 25 percent globally. These gains have been made through a combination of interventions – especially the used of mosquito nets around the bed.

We are so thankful for your support and generosity, especially this time of year!

Iniche!

Women Work Together to Make Garden a Success

The Women's Training Garden is part of the Alliance's Nurturing Nutrition Program, and provides women and their families with education on nutrition and gardening practices, in addition to providing food for their families.

In the last several months there have been some internal struggles between the women working in the garden. The Alliance brainstormed and decided to apply our Healthy Village Workshop model to the garden, and the results we amazing!

Our in country Field Director facilitated a one-day long training for the women, where they were able to engage in dialogue through: voicing their concerns, problem solving to find solutions, and drawing pictures to create short and long term goals for themselves, and the garden as a whole.

Since the training our Field Director says all the women are now working together. Our Field Director explained that the garden has had a prosperous harvest season and the women and their families have benefited from the extra food and extra income. Learning to work together is making everyone more successful! 

Iniche!
