The Kalassa School in Mali takes its first steps!
We would like to share some fantastic news with all the members of the EIL (The worldwide network of the Experiment in International Living): The Kalassa School in Mali that will provide primary education to 556 children aged between 6 and 11 years of ages has taken its first steps!
A result of the group of people who participated in the Microprojects of Cooperation in Mali during summer 2011 and thanks to the daily dedication to Fundraising the rural community of Kalassa, in the south of Mali lays its first brick to “build” education.
In addition, the construction of the school will not only provide educational opportunities to the young people in the area, but is already taking a big step in the improvement of educational services, employing professionals in the region and creating economic opportunities.
AIPC Pandora, together with the volunteers and our local partners in Mali (TMC Consulting Group and Sourires de Femmes) are laying the groundwork so this great educational opportunity for the rural community will see the light. Today we share with you pictures of its construction, clear proof of how civil society partnerships, made up of volunteers, organizations abroad and local, and private donors (either individuals or enterprises) are able to promoting the culture of solidarity with the implementation of real projects.
Thanks to all those who have made it possible for dreams like this to become a reality!
