In the early 2000’s, Ouelessebougou Alliance’s Education Committee developed a innovative program to teach students about Mali, West Africa. The Utah Board of Education included it in its 2nd grade geography curriculum and it introduced thousands of children to the life, land, people, and humanitarian plight of Mali. Resources included education trunks, videos and activities to teach and engage Utah students.
We are excited to announce we are working on an online version of this program, which will launch in late 2021. Our goal is to make our education curriculum even more accessible to the community. This free-resource will allow teachers, students, parents and more the chance to learn more about the wonderful country and citizens of Mali.
