Feeling Powerless? Take Back the Power With The Kids of N'Goko!

Do you sometimes feel powerless when you read the news? Like there’s just no way you can make an impact? I relate. But there are things you can do, and one of them is literally concrete — help build a school that will change lives for kids in Mali. Those changed lives will change our world.

Seriously.

The Final Numbers (& Winners!) Are In For Miles for Mali

The results are in and the winners identified! Together, we covered 3,156 miles during Miles for Mali this May. We raised $5,365 dollars to build the school in N’Goko – that’s still nearly 10 percent of the cost of the new school!

Did You Know You Can Sponsor A Latrine?

Did you know you can sponsor a latrine in someone’s honor? Well you can. Heck, you can even name it after yourself! Okay, the latrine might not be your first choice, but you can sponsor a classroom, the principal’s office, a solar system, or a set of textbooks for our new school in N’Goko too!

A New School for Karim

Building a new school in Mali is one of the most exciting things we do. In partnership with village parents and with donors around the world, we know that a new school means new futures for hundreds of young people in rural Mali. But sometimes knowing one young person’s story is more powerful than imagining hundreds of children. So, let us introduce Karim, who stands to benefit from your support of our next school, to be built in the little village of N’Goko.

The Kids You'll Help in N'Goko

Our supporters are always excited about building a new school — there’s something, well, concrete, about making a donation and seeing a building rise from the red soil of Mali. But what is really exciting about a new school is not the bricks and mortar, but the hundreds — and even thousands — of kids that school will serve. We are currently fundraising for a middle school for the children of N’Goko, so I wanted to share short stories from just a few of the great kids your donation will help.

It's Spring -- The Perfect Time to Get in Shape & to Build a School

This may, 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). Just think — you can get in shape for swimsuit season AND help hundreds of children get into school and on their way to a better life. You can register now!

Help Build a School for N'Goko's Kids!

One of the most exciting things we do at Mali Rising is open a new school with a partner village. A close second? Announcing a new partnership with a new village and launching the effort to raise the funds for that school. It’s just an exciting time. We’ve built a great relationship with the elders and parents of the village, and now we invite Mali Rising’s supporter to join in the relationship. It feels like something we’re all in together — an exciting friendship focused on bringing out the best in all of us. So, come along with us! We’ve just announced our newest partner village — N’Goko

Registration is open for Miles for Mali!

It is time to get walking! Well, it is at least time to get registered to get walking! Registration opens today for Miles for Mali — a fun virtual walking event that raises funds for school construction in Mali. This May, you can help build a school for the children of N’Goko in southeastern Mali, just by taking a walk.

Ready, Set, Walk!

It’s coming! Miles for Mali that is. Funds raised by Miles for Mali walkers will help build our 2019 school in the little village of N’Goko. What is Miles for Mali? 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).
