The 5th poorest country in the world according to the UN’s Human Development Index, Mali also suffers from one of the globe’s lowest literacy rates at 31.1%, and only 20.3% for females. Economic development has been a challenge due to the abundance of subsistence farmers in the nation whose livelihood is continually threatened by drought and wavering crop prices. Because of buildOn’s work, the rural regions of Sikasso, Kalikoro, and Segou now have access to hundreds of classrooms and latrines.
“I was the first woman on the work site. It was a good example to all, and I made everyone get there on time… When I saw people hand out the tools and we began to dig, my dream was becoming a reality.”
