The Importance of Education for Girls

Education for girls has not always been a fundamental right, and in many parts of the world, due to practical or cultural reasons, it is still not an important issue.

In our region of the world, historically girls were expected to stay at home and help with chores such as: gathering firewood, walking miles to collect water, and tending to younger siblings.

But we know, that the more girls are educated, the better it is for everyone. UNESCO tells us a mothers’ education improves child nutrition, and girls with higher levels of education are less likely to get married and have children at an early age.  

Ouelessebougou Alliance is committed to increasing the number of girls in school and seeing those girls complete their primary education all the way through high school. We work with Village Education Councils and the parents associations to educate them about the importance of girls going to school and to encourage them to send their daughters on a regular basis.

None of our training would be possible without you! Your support changes not only these girl’s lives, but the lives’ of the communities they live and learn in!

Thank You!

Iniche!

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!
