Summer Report

By Kadiatou Fatima Sidibe | CEO-Founder

Diakassan with Bronze Medal
Diakassan with Bronze Medal

This summer the children excelled in sports. The highlight of the summer was Diakassan qualifying for the regional fencing competition which was held in Algeria and coming home with a bronze medal and a monetary award. The Board is so proud of her. Three of the other girls won gold medals in a taekwondow tournament. Additionally, several of the children participated in a basketball tournament sponsored in part by Basketball Dream Projects of Mali.

 On the academic front, all the children except for one are advancing to the next grade. We will provide tutoring for the child remaining behind and we are sure that he will advance next year.

 One of our Board members, Hamallah Sidibe, visited the children and he made a video of all the children introducing themselves. The video can be found on the ACFA website www.acfacorp.org.

 ACFA hosted a fundraiser in June at Shaw Tavern in Washington, D.C. attended by our CEO Kadiatou Sidibe. Famous Malian singer Djeneba Seck performed at the fundraiser accompanied by her husband, Sekou Kouyate. The turnout was great and the vibe during the evening was terrific.

 This quarter, we received in-kind donation from organizations such as Foundation Orange as well in individuals in Mali. We always welcome all kinds of donations in-kind and monetary: we cannot continue our mission without your support.

 ACFA also had its first summer interns. The interns all attend George Washington University, and were a big help for our Development and Outreach committees.

 We thank you for your support without which we could not achieve our mission of brining hope to Mali’s vulnerable children.
