Children wearing their medals
Fatoumata is doing well with her glasses. Her next appointment for the doctor’s evaluation is in November. At that time we will be informed of her needs for this year. In the meantime we have a volunteer helping us to recoup the funds prepaid to Necker Hospital in Paris. We will keep you informed of what the outcome is. Thank you very much for your continued support.
This summer 3 of our children were admitted to the youth Malian Federation of basketball, and 2 of those 3 are currently playing in the youth championship of Bamako. The 3rd did not get to participate this year because of a broken leg, but will next year. 3 others received taekwondo medals (1 gold and 2 silver) during Bamako’s championship. 5 children passed to the next belt during this year’s Bamako’s Taekwondo’s tournament.
In April we were blessed with site visit in Bamako from Director Andy from the Segal Family Foundation, and we were able to show him the operations. In Jul, our Director of Operations in Bamako, attended the Segal Family Foundation’s annual meeting in Arusha, Tanzania. What a collaborative and learning opportunity that was!!! His overall impressions were outstanding. This opportunity allowed him to discover other operations on the continent, and discuss with other leaders confronted to similar challenges, network with other nonprofit leaders and learn from each others’ experience, understand donors’ requirements, re-energized with regards to goals, and more deeply understand human resources requirements.
Our work is only possible because of your generosity. Thank you for supporting our efforts towards achieving our mission.
