Empower Mali is pleased to announce a generous $20,000 donation by Building Youth Around the World (BYAW) foundation. This generous donation will add to many investments already made by BYAW Foundation.

To date BYAW has built three classroom middle schools in two villages: Ferekoroba and Fanterila and a teachers housing in the village of Ferekoroba. In addition, they have installed the first electricity producing playground in the village of Ferekoroba that has brought a clean accessible light source into a village where there is no electricity.

The teachers housing will be built in the village of Fanterila, a village in the Commune of N’kourala, in Sikasso, Mali, where Building Youth Around the World just inaugurated a three classroom middle school. The three double room housing will be occupied by the director and teachers of the Building Youth Around the World Academy of Fanterila, thereby ensuring that the village of Fanterila can continue to receive and host teachers well equipped and trained to teach.

Thank you Building Youth Around the World for continuing to invest in the projects that will make access to education a reality for our children in Fanterila, Mali!
