Mali #1

Electricity outages are commom in Bamako, Mali. The Orphelinat Niaber has an eletric water pump which is currently in disrepair. Before it broke down it could only be used when there was electricity. We are researching a way to retrofit their electrical water pump with solar energy. In the interim, we showed them how to harvest rain water from the roof top of the founder’s home. Here the young women who care for the orphans are bringing harvested rain water to the orphanage.

In her own words, we can express with art what we cannot express with words. When we use art to teach others, we help increase their critical thinking skills exponentially. Art can also be a means to generate a revenue source. And when you make art out of trash, everyone benefits.
