"Lift and Lead"

Our annual Gala is the Alliance’s largest source of individual funding each year and provides us with the resources we need to bring sustainable programs to thousands of villagers. Without the Alliance’s work, there are hundreds of families in Ouelessebougou who will not receive the life-saving programs they need.

To ensure the Alliance can continue delivering our health and education programs in 2020, we ask that you please donate to our Virtual Gala as if you would at our live event. Every donations counts — no matter the amount! Even a small contribution will save lives in Mali. We will use each donation wisely to address the most urgent humanitarian needs in Ouelessebougou over the next months. Thank you for your support. 

COVID-19 Update: There are confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Mali. We are part of the first line of defense for the region of Ouelessebougou. Our Mali staff is working with village chiefs, health workers and schools to provide critical resources to safeguard village families. For more information on our efforts to prevent the spread of the virus, please visit our blog.

Our Mission

For 34 years, we have partnered with villagers in Ouelessebougou to provide sustainable health and education programs. Together we bring hope and self-reliance to thousands of villagers. See how your donations make a difference.
