Mali is the eigth biggest country in Africa. The population of Mali is 14.5 million. It's smaller compared to Nepal and Peru, but it is also involved in the Student Literacy Challenge. The primary school participation rate for males is 71.6% and 62.6% in females. This is lower than Peru and Nepal. And unfortunatley, the literacy rate is also low with a 56% for males and 38.8% for females.

What is the Student Lteracy Challenge? About 250 million children worldwide can't read or write. Students Rebuild, Save the Children, and the Global Nomads Group have coopertated together to make the Studnet Literacy Challenge. This is where our part comes in. For every bookmark we make and mail in, the Bezos family Foundation will donate $1. They are trying to raise up to $300,000 to send to The Save the Cildren Literacy Program in Latin America, Africa and Asia.
