Sponsor the Kita, Mali Community

Join the families of Kita on a journey of hope

Kita, in western Mali, is a very poor community where life for children is a daily struggle. But with Community Sponsorship, you can help the children and families of Kita create a healthy, secure, self-sustaining community.

For about $1 a day, just $39 a month, you can transform the community of Kita. Your donation is tax-deductible as a charitable gift.
