CAI’s 25th School In Progress – An Important Milestone

CAI’s 25th school is now getting ready for breaking ground at Kolda, about 430 miles from Dakar, in Senegal. This will be a middle school, the first one in the area, for poor children graduating from elementary school, a chance to progress up. Insha’Allah. CAI Trustees had a very productive trip to Senegal and Liberia late November. You can read the trip report and view some photos here.

Alhamd’Allah, CAI is fortunate to have this opportunity – 25 quality schools in 18 years, most in the remotest part of our universe. I thank Allah for this tremendous blessing and salute CAI’s many donors and well-wishers for their solid and unwavering support. Allah bless.

Let Us Please Provide Them Desks

We have about 22 elementary schools all around Kolda in Senegal where children don’t have desks to sit on. The children sit on the dirt floor for hours, stooped over textbooks, a painful and very uncomfortable task indeed. A desk costs US$60 and sits three children in relative comfort. Please donate towards this project. We want to be able to have all the children sitting comfortable insha’Allah.
