Make your cents serve!

Where will your cents go?

Toward the construction of classrooms and the development of training programs which facilitate access to education for the minors who reside in the CAPEMA orphanage. They currently have to travel a great distance to go to school, with all the dangers that this directly entails for the 255 children who are at constant risk. These children will greatly benefit from this project.

How much money do we need?

To carry out this project, the CAPEMA Orphanage needs only € 19,999.99.

What have we done so far?

Since March 2018, the Canis Majoris Foundation has made various contributions for the purchase of laying hens and pairs of rabbits, as well as the necessary material for the construction of the respective pens. The first part of the project has been a success with the creation of a farm of their own, the orphanage has been self-sufficient of basic food, and, in addition, with the sale of the surplus, they are able to help offset the daily expenses of the Orphanage, thus contributing to the economic autonomy of the center, which directly makes an improvement in the quality of life of the children who live there.

Frequently asked questions:

Who is behind this campaign?

The Canis Majoris Foundation in collaboration with the CAPEMA orphanage (Center d’Accueil pour la Protection, l’Education Des Enfants in Situation Difficiles et des Aides Ménagéres).


Where is the CAPEMA Orphanage?

The CAPEMA orphanage is located in the Sikasso region, which is located south of Mali, being one of the 8 administrative regions of the country. The region borders to the south with Ivory Coast, to the east with Burkina Faso and to the west with the Republic of Guinea, which makes Sikasso a region where the cultures of West Africa are reflected and determining the city as a true crossroads. However, this proximity to coastal countries makes Mali one of the main pathways for the trafficking of people as well as drugs or weapons. The exact address of the orphanage is: Center d’Accueil pour la Protection, l’Education Des Enfants in Situation Difficiles et des Aides Ménagères Wayerma1; Rue: 45; Porte: 229 BP: 18 Sikasso Mali.
