Educating Children in Mali:  In Mali, one of the world's poorest countries in western Africa, many villages are located in remote areas, with no schools nearby, which contributes to the more than 800,000 Malian children who do not go to school.  Only three out of 5 girls go to primary school in Mali .  Families are worried about their safety, the limited opportunities that await them, and rely on the girls to take care of younger siblings or help with farming and other chores.  Many girls have few options; they drop out of school to marry young and perpetuate a cycle of family poverty.  School can break the intergenerational cycle of poverty.  Read about America Ferrera's efforts to help Save the Children improve educational opportunities for children in Diassadeni village in Sikasso District in Mali , and how you can help.  Visit http://apps.facebook.com/causes/403327/95886565?fb_page_id=22616251873&m=71bb3202

The Need for Schools in Mali

In Mali, 66%of men and 77% of women have no formal education.  As a result, Mali is incredibly poor and is ranked 175th of 177 countries.  A Save the Children sponsored community school features 3 classrooms, a headmaster’s room and latrines for both boys and girls.  Once a school is built, Save the Children ensures that the school has skilled teachers and the learning resources children need to make the most of their educations.
