Jigiya - Our New Mali Friends

Jigiya Responds - Nov '08 | June 7, '08 | Nov '07 | March '07

Last year's years video conference with Jigiya at our September conference is still available here.

Jigiya members wearing SA t-shirtsOne thing we have learned is that our Jigiya friends need some help. There is no funding for the work they do. The SA Board has decided to establish a "Jigiya Fund". We started the fund raising at the SA State Conference by dedicating our 50/50 raffle profits to Jigiya. This amounted to $263! Also, the winner of the raffle, Larry Sutliff, generously donated back $100 of his winnings, bringing the total to $363!

You can also make a donation to our Jigiya Fund by calling Steve Holmes at (518) 382-1454 or emailing him at seholmes@earthlink.netOur Jigiya friends wearing some T-shirts we sent them from last year’s conference. Jigiya, by the way, means ‘support’ or ‘help’ in Bambara, a native language the members of Jigiya speak. We think they want to open up a can of change in Mali! You can also go to Stephen Anderson’s site directly and look at all the pictures: www.geocities.com/steve_intj/
