We're Taking Stock, Digging In,

Solving Problems and Paving the Way

for a New Year at Ko-Falen in Mali.

Help us achieve our goals!

Taking Stock: Ko-Falen purchases grain for our Family Food & Wellness Program.

Identified families receive 50 kilos each of rice, green millet and corn. This year we will feed 20 families. In addition, we provide assistance for families with chronic health issues and diseases. 

Digging In: Caretaker Madou works with students to grow our gardens at the Tutoring Center.

Ko-Falen is giving our students the opportunity to learn gardening tips and grow their skills. Some have already begun gardens at home!

Solving Problems:  Math Teacher Maama works with three of her students during Algebra class.

Our students learn geometry, algebra and physics.

Paving the Way: Our neighborhood is helping to pave the road in front of Ko-Falen.

Finally! Students and neighbors are working together to make our dangerous road safe for our students to negotiate!

As 2022 comes to an end,

we applaud YOU for all that we have accomplished together. We look forward to greeting the New Year with you--our friends and family.   

                                 Our programs in Mali:
                            1) Feed families in food-insecure times

                            2) Guarantee potable water to our students & families

                            3) Keep young girls in school
                            4) Instill self-confidence and pride in underserved youth

                            5) Give students skills for their future
                            6) Open their eyes to a global world

Just finished a remarkable run of the

33rd Cascade Festival of African Films!

We in Oregon are so fortunate to have this gem and Ko-Falen is proud to be a sponsor.

If you weren't able to view the Opening Night Film of the Festival, Blue Caftan (Morocco), you still have a chance to see it!

Cinema 21 is showing Blue Caftan, March 10-16. Don't miss this unforgettable film!
