Challenge

In the southern region of Ouelessebougou, many Malians are deprived of basic education. Poverty, political insecurity, and conflict are among the many obstacles preventing villagers from obtaining a quality education. Lack of access to quality classrooms, education programs, and teachers are also factors in the high dropout rate. There are cultural barriers including child labor and marriage, gender inequality, and more which often deter parents from sending their girls to school.

Solution

We invest in children's education to create more literate village communities. But we also know the value of providing formal opportunities for youth and adults who were unable to continue their education. We partner with 25 villages in the Ouelessebougou region and support 12 elementary schools. Our locally-vetted programs are driven and led by Malians themselves to address the literacy goals of each vilage. Programs include elementary education support, teacher training, and literacy classes.

Long-Term Impact

Together we can improve education outcomes in Ouelessebougou. This project will fund the formal education programs for 12 elementary schools with an approximate enrollment of 2,200 students K-6. It will also provide literacy courses for over 300 individuals ages 12 and older, the majority who are young mothers and women. By investing in not only childhood education, but also continued education for older villages, we will be able to transform lives by improving literacy.
