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.
Welcome to the village of N’Tentou, where Jackie Trujillo Middle School was opened in 2006. This school was Mali Rising Foundation’s very first school, so its construction was ground-breaking – both literally and figuratively. This summer we've been doing some improvements at the school, and looking back at the history of the school and the village.
