School's Out for Summer!

By Judy Hut | Executive Director

Children in Ouelessebougou are thrilled that school is out this month. This joy is even sweeter after a successful school year made possible by the partnership of the villagers and Ouelessebougou Alliance. 

  • Over 1,900 students received a quality education at Alliance sponsored elementary schools
  • More than 45% of students in attendance this year are girls!
  • The Alliance provided teacher training and support to the Village Education Councils 

These and more educational opportunities were made possible because of the generosity of our donors. Every dollar donated to our education programs in Ouelessebougou directly benefit the students in each of our 12 village elementary schools. The Alliance is committed to increasing the enrollment of girls to 50% in the 2017 - 2018 school year. The Alliance works closely with the Village Education Councils to educate village parents on the importance of sending their daughters to school. In a culture where girls traditionally stay home to help their mothers with housework, it is imperative that parents recognize the value of a quality education -- for everyone. 

You can help us prepare for a successful 2017 - 2018 school year by making a donation today! Thank you for believing in the girls of Ouelessebougou. Iniche!
