  • Build Schools for children in Mali Charity

    27th April 2023

    10TH NATIONAL RIDE - SUPPORTING CHILDREN'S EDUCATION IN MALI The HKCC has a proud history of supporting children with education and healthcare in Africa. On the 10th anniversary of the HKCC National Ride, the club has partnered with Muntada Aid to provide a school-building educational infrastructure for a primary school on the outskirts of Bamako. The school aims to provide free, quality modern education to 400 children (boys and girls).       Please watch the Youtube link for more information.     CHILDREN OF MALI "Providing quality education for all is fundamental to creating a peaceful and prosperous world. Education gives people the knowledge and skills to stay healthy, get jobs and foster tolerance." More than half of Mali's total population of around 19 million people are under 18. Today, more than 1100 schools in Mali are closed due to insecurity, affecting over 350,000 children, many of whom are in the central region of Mopti. UNICEF estimates that over two million children across the country, aged 5 to 17, are out of school due to insecurity, household poverty, child labour, child marriage, and a lack of quality schools close to children's homes.   WHY EDUCATION IN IN MALI? Mali's young population presents immense potential for contributing positively to building the Mali of tomorrow. Many of Mali's girls and boys are denied the opportunity to reach their full potential because they are unable to access quality education, health and nutrition services, clean water, and adequate sanitation and hygiene. In addition, many children - especially girls - are exposed to various forms of violence and abuse.   One of our teachers will be cycling 120 miles from London to Bournemouth on 8th July 2023.
