BENEFITING: Sahara Solutions Foundation
Imagine one day as you prepare to go to school, your parents tell you to grab whatever you can carry to travel across the desert to refugee camp in another country, you are no longer safe at home.....
There are thousands of Malian children from nomadic villages living in a Mauritanian refugee camp, and over 135 city students living with foster families in the capital city. They range in age from 12 to 20 years old, grades 6 through university. In Mali these children were good students, their parents putting a high priority on education. Each student now lives with their family or their ‘foster’ family in a temporary and difficult emergency situation.
In order to enroll and remain in school in Mauritania, they must purchase books and school supplies, and in some cases clothing; to attend they must walk or find transportation every school day; to succeed in a new school they need some ‘catch-up” tutoring.
NomadHope is working to enroll them in school no matter where they are and help them continue their education until they can return home. Once they can return home, we will resume our work enabling a clean and healthy learning environment for each school and student.
HELP us keep children in school, no matter where they are today!
