Mali has one of the highest illiteracy rates where only 37% of students graduate from primary school.
With your contribution, each of these smiling faces will be able to graduate from elementary school.
Gourma Himi is a state of Georgia registered 501(c) nonprofit organization providing education to underprivileged children in Mali. Gourma Himi's goal is to foster a commitment to underprivileged children that will promote education, strong work skills, and reassert a sense of hope in the future.
We work with local communities to build schools, recruit teachers from within and encourage parents to bring their kids to school. Only through education can children follow through on the path to adulthood with a sense of pride and success.
Due to the lack of schools, furnished classrooms and adequate nutrition, many communities have lost faith in the possibilities that can await underprivileged children when given education. To open up these possibilities, these children must be in a caring, acceptable learning environment that promotes their best effort and reinforces self dependence.
