We are excited to welcome our new Teacher Project Coordinator, Adama, to Mali Rising’s Mali-based staff. Although we are sad to see our previous Coordinator, Francois, move on, we know Adama will do a great job in the role. We asked Adama a few questions to help everyone get to know him.
My name is Siraba. I am in grade 9 at Beneko's Cliff and Nita Bailey Middle School….When I started middle school two years ago it was also the beginning of the Girls Project. Thanks to the different activities of the Girl Project, such as monthly meetings on different themes, the menstrual cycle, the meeting with women of different skills (women nurses, engineers), the women's football competition, advice and talks, etc., I started to set goals. Little by little, I started to love school.
