School Supplies for Soni Tieni—$1000
The village of Soni Tieni is a unique community maintaining a strong connection with its traditional culture, while working to build an enduring contemporary educational system. With Ko-Falen’s help, the school has grown to accommodate over 1500 students from Soni Tieni and seven nearby villages. By supporting this vital school, youth can remain in their community to continue their studies rather than relocating to urban areas. This allows them to learn and maintain traditional customs while engaging in a contemporary formal education.
By purchasing their needed supplies in Bamako, we ensure that we are outfitting students with appropriate materials and at the same time supporting the local economy by buying from merchants in Mali.
