Africare continues its new Pass It On! Campaign with a spotlight story about one of our own: Alassane Aguili, Program manager in Africare-Mali .

Tucked away in Northern Mali near the fabled city of Timbuktu, villages in the Circle of Goundam are thriving.  


“They are growing rice, they are growing wheat, they have micro-credit programs, nutrition and health programs… and all in the middle of the desert,” remarks Alassane Aguili, program manager for Africare-Mali, a leading development organization working to improve the quality of life in Africa.  “This makes me proud because they’re moving forward.”


Alassane has seen the transformation of Goundam first hand. He grew up just 12 kilometers outside the Circle and remembers seeing Africare trucks travel to and from his village some 20 years ago.

Each story is packaged in a format that is ready to “pass on” to a friend or someone you know through video, social networks, and even your phone!
