This is a School programme supported by Le Rosey Foundation.
Since 2003, Le Rosey parents and all at Le Rosey have teamed up to finance and realise the construction and opening of Le Rosey’s sister School in Bamako: Le Rosey-Abantara. The classroom conditions in Le Rosey-Abantara are far more favourable than in Mali’s public School system.
In Le Rosey-Abantara, students benefit from an exceptional infrastructure including a sports field. The average ratio of students per teacher is of 30 to 1 as opposed to the public system where it reaches 100 to one on average. Abantara teachers benefit from training offered by Le Rosey teachers who go to Mali on a regular basis.
In order to offer such an excellent education to less fortunate children, scholarships are offered to Le Rosey-Abantara. A donation of only CHF 920 per annum covers the School fees as well as transport costs, meals, books, and the School uniform. Today, more than 200 students attend the School on scholarship. To make this a reality for even more deserving children, you can sponsor a child in Le Rosey-Abantara. As a sponsor, you will receive regular information and updates including School reports and personalised correspondence.
