Youchaou’s school in Mali, Westafrika, is one of my favourites (well, I also have a few others, but this one is really good). And this, not only because my family and I visited the project last January and spent a great day and evening with Youchaou, Jürgen and the street children he supports with a daily meal in his courtyard. My enthusiasm has more to do with the approach itself – a local initiative strategically supported by outsiders in a respectful and cooperative way. Imagine my reaction when I received this photo:
It shows participants of a workshop in Bamako, Malis capital, learning how to use betterplace, so that the stakeholders of the project can blog about it directly. This is the idea of the Web of Trust: give as many people as possible a voice in order to increase – or shatter – trust for a social initiative.
I hope many people will support the scholarships for needy children.
