In partnership with rural Malians in the southwest, Mali Nyeta is working to realize changes in their lives and well-being that they have identified. Taking a wholistic approach to economic development, Mali Nyeta started with education — the building of a school. A micro-finance program helps to increase the income-generating power of women’s associations, sources of important support to the school. Attending to standards of public health is also a priority of rural Malians, hence Mali Nyeta’s engagement in the construction of a health center — both as a support to schools and as an inherently valuable addition to a community. Water resources management — deep-water wells and irrigation systems — further buttress public health and the prospects for fruitful schooling.
