Dear Partners and Friends,
Abdoulaye’s father and mother left Mali to look for better life in Mauritania. Then, his father died and left him and his mother along with his younger brothers and sisters without any means of living. After a while, his mother found a way to take them back to Mali and settle with her relatives in one of the poorest area of Bamako. So, as a teenager, Abdoulaye became angry and frustrated about his life and started to spend most of his time on the streets consuming drugs along with other teenagers.
It is during that time, that EPHRATA came to connect with him through its “Street Light” program.
According to Adoulaye, what helped him most during the program were the life lessons based on biblical principles that had been taught to them.
“The Life lesson teaching helped me to change my mind “Abdoulaye.
Today, Abdoulaye went through a literacy class, receives foods support and has entered a trade apprenticeship course that will allow him to provide for himself and his family in the future.
To help many children and teenagers like Abdoulaye, EPHRATA has set up this campaign called “MISS A MEAL FOR MALI”.
The campaign “MISS A MEAL FOR MALI” gives you an opportunity to donate the cost of a meal over a month and to use the time of the forfeited meal for prayer (for those in Christ)
Be a blessing and stick to your new years resolution of weight lost. Skip a meal per day to bless a kid for life. Donate the cost of your one month lunch or dinner and pray for EPHRATA and Mali during January 2019.
The campaign “MISS A MEAL FOR MALI” targets the amount of Euro 30,000.
Help us reach this goal by mobilizing your friends and network to donate.
For the holistic development and the right of Children in Mali.
Your Friends at EPHRATA.
