Village of Kolé 100km from Bamako, Mali

We are a group of 60 women in the village of Kole in Mali and need your support to realise our ambition to develop our market garden.

For over 20 years, we have been cutting and logging trees to sell or making handicrafts and tools, but we are now convinced of the damage to nature and a disaster for the environment. The selling of wood and making charcoal to sell at the market has taken its toll on the women of the village, and many have developed illnesses.

We have an area of one hectare of land which has been purchased by Association of Kolé women to help make it a place of livelihood without cutting any wood.

The 60 women saved the price of the plot for over two years before buying it for market gardening and without your support, we are unable to work the land.

With a market in the village and also not far from Ouéléssébougou which has one of the most important markets in the area with very easy access, the women of Kolé have decided today to change their method of generating an income to support their children.

Knowing that they are the first to bear the school fees of their children, their healthcare and even their clothing, they joined together in an association whose name is: Sigui tè mogo son meaning ‘Staying seated gives nothing to a person’.

Your donation will help support many families in the village.

The project will consist of fencing the plot with very good quality wire mesh of 400m against the wandering of animals, the digging of large diameter wells with a depth of 14m each, the training of members of the association’s management committee in market gardening techniques, in community life and in income management.

May Allah reward you for your help and may Allah make our ambitions to support our families successful.
