Looking Back at a Successful Soiree

Meet Our Fall Communication Intern, Sam

One who eats alone....

“One who eats alone cannot discuss the taste of the food with others” — African proverb. Let us save you from that fate for at least one night in September!

Volunteers Send Encouragement to Our Students

Last Saturday I had an incredible time at Salt Lake’s annual Africa Festival. I was there staffing a booth about Mali Rising, and helping people share their notes of encouragement with our students. Despite the heat, dozens of people stopped by the booth to share their thoughts of hope and the value of education. Check out some of the amazing messages in the slideshow.

Inspire Yourself at the 50 Women Mixer!

Our work with our girls in Mali is personally my very favorite part of my job. And part of what I so love about this work is how it lets me connect with great women here in the United States too – women like you who light up whenever we talk about giving girls a chance to change the world. So, I’m really excited about a fun gathering coming up on Friday, August 23 (5:30 to 7:30 pm) here in Salt Lake City – our first ever 50 Women Mixer.
