We are pleased to hear you’re interested in our projects in Mali, Africa.
These girls are eagerly waiting to be allowed to go to school. Their families cannot afford school fees, and some girls are orphans. Meaning, they won’t be able to get an education without financial support.
For more than 15 years, the association „Häuser der Hoffnung“ (Houses of Hope) has provided girls and young women with donations to access schooling, better health, education, and basic income. A dormitory for girls in Bamako was built, scholarships and sponsorships were established for girls. Four schools built in rural areas were handed over to the state. Solar lamps were donated. These are just some examples of many projects we’re conducting in Africa. You can read more on the following pages.
Especially girls need support in Mali – your help is crucial and can save lives!
Dr. Gudrun Eisermann, Chairwoman of „Häuser der Hoffnung“
The global COVID-19 pandemic is prompting us all to reconsider the importance of our personal efforts in preventing deseases from spreading.
We note that children in particular are the ones who suffer first and most in times like these. In Mali, in Africa, many children live in conflict-affected areas, and education and social systems are overwhelmed.
The majority of children are not vaccinated and preventive examinations are lacking. Closing schools requires children to make another sacrifice: they can no longer go to school or attend classes. In concrete terms: schools as meeting places are no longer necessary, a protective shield is missing. For many children, schooling means avoiding violence, exploitation and the effects of difficult living conditions. School closures can have devastating consequences and permanently affect children’s development. Child labour, child marriage and sexual exploitation are increasing, the number of unwanted pregnancies is increasing, minors are being recruited for militias. In other words, many children in Mali are in existential need.
WE SUPPORT PROJECTS THAT ENABLE CHILDREN IN MALI TO LEARN AND TO PROTECT THEM. WE FINANCE A DORMITORY FOR 60 GIRLS, SUPPORT A WOMEN’S SHELTER AND A FOUNDLING HOME AND ENACT PRIVATE TEACHERS AND EDUCATORS FROM MALI.
TOGETHER WITH THEM, WE WANT TO ENSURE THAT AS MANY CHILDREN AS POSSIBLE HAVE ACCESS TO EDUCATION AND HEALTH CARE. PLEASE HELP WITH DONATIONS USING THE KEYWORD „CHILD PROTECTION“. GET INVOLVED WITH US. YOUR DONATION GETS WHERE IT IS MOST NEEDED.
Our credo: Education not only improves children’s future prospects, but also the stability of their social environment.
Thank you very much for your attention and valuable support!
Greetings, Dr. Gudrun Eisermann
