Keep 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.

The Alliance is committed to expanding educational opportunities for village children, especially girls.  School latrines and village wells have opened the door for many more young women to pursue their goals.  In addition, our outreach with village education councils has helped them see the importance of both boys and girls receiving quality educational instruction.

Continuing to Save Lives

Iniche!

We are excited to announce that we are beginning the distribution of mosquito nets.

The staff is so excited about this, and about the practice of using nets generally, both in the US and in Mali.

Our distributors having been making numerous trips out to the villages and many of them will wait for hours, for the villagers to return after farming in the fields, to ensure that every net finds a home.

Malaria is always on the forefront of our minds as we continue to facilitate sustainable programs in health. We know that the best way to continue to prevent the spread of the disease is with mosquito nets.

Please consider helping us help stop the spread of Malaria.

Back to School!

Well, it's that time of year again! Both here in the US and in Mali students are headed back to school.

Recently in one of our villages, Famana, the principal of the school there shared a story that children - both boys and girls - some as young as 4 years, were walking to school to listen in on the lessons and learn, despite the fact they weren't technically enrolled. And the teachers, graciously and patiently allowed them to listen in.

Famana has been one of the villages where are education initiatives have been successfully implemented, which includes: teacher trainings for all teacher, providing school supplies such as book and bench desks, and increasing enrollment numbers of village children, especially among girls.

Thanks to the wonderful teachers who give so much to make sure children in remote villages also have a safe place to learn! And thanks to all of you who continue to support our education initiatives and turn these children’s dreams into reality!
