It is time to get walking! Well, it is at least time to get registered to get walking!

It is simple: In May 2019, we challenge you to walk or run the distance children in rural Mali villages walk to get to school in one week (40 miles) or one month (160 miles).

Today is the opening day of Mali Rising’s Make the Case for Caring Essay Contest. From now until March 31 at midnight, U.S. high school students have a chance to weigh in on an important international topic in a short essay…and a chance at (modest) fortune and (modest) fame!
If you're like me, you know you're lucky to have your amazing mother, daughter, best friend, or wife. But every year you struggle to find a gift that reflects how much you admire her strength, her grit, her kindness. What gift could possibly measure up? This year, why not give her a gift that really reflects who she is – a powerful force for good in the world. Give her a chance to help young women in Mali grow into smart, powerful, compassionate women just like her…give her a 50 Women membership.
Well we had a blast. How about you? The Mali Rising 2018 Soiree is one for the books and it we send out our thanks to everyone who joined us to celebrate the last year and to kick of Mali’s new school year in style.
I know I’ve done it and I bet you have too -- got carried away at a charity auction and come home with a strange carving we can't fit anywhere in our house. We shrug and tell ourselves the funds went to a good cause. So why not just directly decide where those funds will go and spare yourself donating the dusty trinket to the thrift store two years later? That's the concept behind the Auction for Action at Mali Rising's Soiree this Thursday.
Don't miss the fun & the great food! If you are in the Salt Lake City area, join us on September 27th for an evening of celebration, exploration, and great West African food.
Mali Rising's first-ever virtual walking challenge -- Miles for Mali -- is in the books! This May, thirty-three volunteers walked more than 2,400 miles to raise $2,100 to build a new school for the kids of Sankama, Mali. We had a great time with our volunteer walkers, and everyone did a great job. However, one walker really stood out -- Phoebe Mathew from Holland, Pennsylvania. Why did she stand out you ask?
