The back-to-school specials are now on and school supplies can be
purchased at a fraction of their normal price. Please consider sending a
few items to a school in Bamako, Mali. While teaching in Mali, I visited
schools that had no paper, books, etc. - just a chalkboard. Items such as
colored paper, watercolors, and markers are nonexistent.
I contacted a former colleague who is Malian. He said that any size box
will do either by the post or a private company like DHL. But you have to
write on the boxes Donation to Ecole Privee Youchaou. Youchaou is the name
of the school things have to be sent to. So for any donation to any school
or place in Mali, includes the word Donation, as that will facilitate its
delivery without enormous charges to the school. Find below the address of
the school your donation are being sent to.
Your support would be much appreciated.
