Behind the Scenes...

By Merritt Frey, Executive Director

From November 3 to November 18, Mali Rising's U.S. staff joined our Mali staff for a whirlwind tour of 18 of our schools, visits with scholarship students, meetings with potential new villages and so much more. This is the post is one of a series of blog postings featuring parts of that trip.

On this blog we usually focus on the serious (but fun) work in our schools with our students.  But after each trip to Mali, we always have some photos that are just special little peeks at life in Mali, our students, and our travels.

Today, I want to share just a few favorite moments from the November trip through photos like this. I hope these images make you feel like you were there, making your own connection with the great people of Mali.
