Mali, West Africa

Amy, our chapter Chair, just arrived back from a Women of Vision trip to Mali in West Africa.

 The focus of the trip was to view water projects, and to visit villages in various stages of the transformational development process.

Highlights of the trip included:

  • Visits with sponsored children
  • Meeting with several groups of women, some of whom are shea butter or soap makers
  • Visiting several water boreholes, with at least one doing live drilling
  • Hearing / seeing the challenges of children with trachoma, malaria and parasites, including a visit to a school for blind children
