Send Girls to School - All Month Long!

By Jen Beckstead | Staff Member


Not too many years ago, village parents in the rural villages of Mali only sent their sons to school to obtain an education. Daughters were left to care for their younger siblings, while their mothers and fathers worked in the fields daily. In the 35 years the Alliance has been committed to providing health and education programs in Ouelessebougou, so much has improved when it comes to village schools and providing an education for all.

Last year 2,211 students attended school in the Alliance's 12 partner elementary schools, and 43% of those attending daily were girls! It has been a marvelous shift in society to see villagers, young and old, recognize the importance of making education a priority for girls. 

This week an expedition group from Utah is in Mali visiting villages and educating girls and their mothers on the Days For Girls program and distributing the much anticipated Days For Girls kits. We have been excited over the past year to partner with Days For Girls International which focuses on sending girls to school all month long--regardless of whether they are on their period cycle or not. This year we are excited to expand the program into more villages--allowing even more girls to attend school ALL month long!
