Partnering to Help the Girls

The Ouelessebougou Alliance, has been, and is committed to keeping girls in school.

One way we do this is by partnering with Days for Girls International, an organization committed to educating girls about female health and reproduction, and providing feminine hygiene kits to help keep girls in school all year long.

Days for Girls International is an organization, “dedicated to improving lives and livelihoods in part through safe, sustainable feminine hygiene choices to promote dignity, opportunity and health of girls and women throughout the world.”

Providing girls and women with access to this type of care, helps keep girls in school longer, and fosters a culture of long lasting education. We know that by educating girls and women we can reduce poverty, develop agriculture, and increase economic development.

Malaria Still A Concern

With the emergence of the Zitka Virus, headlines around the world are focused on Mosquitos and the Americas.

While the country of Mali hasn't been affected, we are deeply concerned for those countries, families, and people who have been.

And while this virus rages on, Africans still face the same health challenges that kill so many of them annually.  

Malaria, transmitted by mosquitos, remains one of the top health issues they face.  

Mosquito nets are the only method of protection and typically cost $10.  

For those who live in extreme poverty (less than $1 per day) a $10 net seems prohibitive.

The Alliance subsidizes the cost of the net so that villagers only pay $1 for a net that can protect a family of four up to three years.

Thanks for your continued support of this critical initiative!

Women's Training Garden is off to a great start!

Progress is being made in the OA Women's Training Garden!

OA Field Director, Anounou Sissoko, spent some time in the OA Women's Training Garden last week distributing seeds and teaching about composting. All the women pledged to stop using chemicals in the garden as well!

The Women's Training Garden is part of OA'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.

So far we have completed a new well, trained over 80 women on efficient gardening and composting practices, taught how to manage products for consumption, sale and preserve products they cannot sell.

Donations will fund purchasing materials such as: rakes and hoes, wheelbarrows, tarps, and purchasing a variety of seeds.

These women are so grateful for the education and hope to see great crops this year!
