Are you passionate about improving children’s lives? Do you think that education empowers and changes lives? Are you wondering how you can make a positive impact? Do you like to spend time on social media? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you have the potential to be a Mali Rising Foundation STAR! 

A Mali Rising STAR is a passionate and enthusiastic social media champion of Malian children and is dedicated to advocating for better education and bigger dreams. If you’re a STAR, you can help children in Mali receive the education they deserve by incorporating our message into the social media activities you already do. As a STAR, you will be a social media ambassador for Mali Rising Foundation and you will:

  • Spread the word.
  • Take action.
  • Advocate on social media.
  • Reach out and educate.

To be a STAR, we just ask that you share news about Mali Rising at least 6-8 times a year via social media (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram). Oh, that’s all you have to do? Yes, that is all! You can either share our posts or create your own. And we have a handy toolkit that will provide everything you need, including sample posts.

The simple act of sharing news about Mali Rising via your social media accounts means that we can expand our online reach and circle of supporters and therefore help more children in Mali. Education empowers! As a token of our thanks, you will receive a small gift from Mali. 

If you are interested in becoming a STAR for Mali Rising, please email one (or both) of us to find out more!
