charitywater Building a Better Future in Mali (Part 2/3)

Using a combination of soil, millet, small sticks, and water, the men make bricks that bake in the sun for two days.

Building a house takes close to a week. But the process is faster now that they have access to water right in the middle of their community. “Making the bricks used to take two days. With the water near us, we do it in one,” Bala Coulibali shared. “Now we get water easily, and we can do our work quickly.” Photo: @jeremysnell

charitywater Building a Better Future in Mali (Part 1/3)

Every year, the men in Sourountouna Village come together during the dry season (when farming isn’t an option) to build homes in their community. They don’t get paid; they volunteer.
Why? “In this village,” Bala Coulibali says, “if you help others, people will come to help you too.”

  •   abba_aliahmed No one is asking why she does what she does. It seems things,are constantly framed all the time to serve some personal interest. Look at it this way, it is like sitting in a room with so many windows and one window was opened for you and you were asked to look at things only from that window. I believe that is too subjective a scenario, why don't they open the other windows one at a time so we can all understand the other side of the story, why she has to do all that. Come on people, perhaps the matrix Era has really came. There is more to all that story than what you see through that single window. 2w
  •   ppenny_powell Give us more of your perspective. What might we see through the other windows? 2w
