We’re back from our trip to Mali, and the ground-breaking ceremony for a schoolhouse in a tiny village about 4 hours southeast of the capital city of Bamako.
With the help of our business partners and clients we’ve taken a portion of Courtney & Co’s income over the past year and have donated it to help build a school in a deserving village in Africa. I would like to personally thank you for your patronage. By working with Courtney & Co, you’ve helped improve education in a small part of the world. As you know, education is a major key in improving social and economic conditions for struggling communities around the globe.
We would especially like to thank buildOn, the organization who made this all possible. Their global network of passionate and hands-on individuals has built over 350 schools in developing nations like Haiti, Nicaragua, Nepal, Malawi and Mali. buildOn has been awarded the highest ranking 5 years running by Charity Navigator, who awards groups that have the highest percentage of donations going towards programs.
