Ko-Falen Tutoring Center

Ko-Falen Cultural Center is a non-profit working in the US and Mali, W. Africa. It is the dream of founder Baba Wague Diakite to create greater understanding and respect between people of differing cultures through exchanges.

One of our most successful campaigns has been our free tutoring program at the Ko-Falen Cultural Center in Bamako, Mali. Last year, thanks to generous donations, we began building a two-classroom Tutoring Center to accommodate our growing number of eager students. (Link to https://kofalen.org/center/tutoring-center-in-the-mango-grove/
to see photos of the building in process.)

With your help, this year we will raise the remaining $10,000 needed to complete the Tutoring Center, which will include a facility with toilet/septic system and safe drinking water for all of our students and their families.

Please give to this most deserving project that has helped young boys and girls from the most underserved communities move into the school system and rise to the top of their class!  Your tax deductible donations will be happily received through September 22nd, 2016 (Mali Independence Day).
