Education Group sponsor SOS Children's village in Sanankoroba

Education Group are to make donations from their African Drumming workshop profits to the charity,
SOS Children.

The money will specifically go to the SOS Children's Village in Sanankoroba, which was the first SOS village to be built in Mali.

The village is made up of 12 family houses, a sports ground, a kindergarten, medical clinic, which gives medical treatment to the village children and the local community, a primary and secondary school and a vocational training workshop.

The kindergarten provides a quality early education to 150 children from the SOS village and the local community and the school is open to 800 pupils, again from the local neighbourhood as well as the SOS village. The vocational training workshop offers training courses to local young people, as well as young people from the SOS village, in tailoring.

The SOS village also has 2 hectares of agricultural land where vegetables and fruit are grown to supply the village, with the excess produce being sold at the local market. There is also an SOS Youth Home in Bamako (Mali's capital) where young people from the SOS Children's village can learn to take their first steps towards independence, while continuing their education and being cared for by SOS.
