Hello Friends and welcome to the Zolani Organics Blog! Our international relief initiative is really taking off! We are in the progress of raising money to send books and school supplies to the village of Bougoudale located in Mali West Africa. So far we have raised $103.00 dollars out of our $2,000.00 dollar goal.
Many children in Mali are unable to attend school because families cannot afford the cost of uniforms, books, school supplies and other costs associated with attending public school. The average monthly family income in Mali is approximately $500.00 dollars per month. According to the Library of Congress – Federal Research Division, only 36 percent of children complete primary school while the remaining 63 percent are forced to withdraw. The rate of attendance is even lower for female children.
With our efforts, we are working to grant more children the opportunity to attend school and receive a well-deserved education. We would like to sincerely thank you for your support in purchasing our products as you are making a difference in a child’s life.
