Thank you for considering a gift to the Dokotoro Project to help us translate and distribute the book Where There Is No Doctor in the Bambara language.
Donations go to our fiscal sponsor, the nonprofit African Sky, which in turn sends us the money. We are all volunteers, so your donation will go directly to pay our team of professional translators and editors in Mali. As of September 2014, we are about 70% of the way there, and we need $15,000 to finish having the book translated and edited.
By translating this book, we will make critical medical information available to the 11 million people in Mali and neighboring countries who speak Bambara. This book is based on the premise that ordinary people, provided with clear, simple information – in their own language-- can prevent and treat most common health problems in their own homes. It will be a vital resource to community health workers, volunteers, and ordinary citizens to promote health in their communities.
We are so thankful to you, our donors. Thank you for joining us in an effort that can literally save lives!
