We are so thankful to everyone who has made a donation to the Dokotoro Project. The donations to date have exceeded our wildest expectations. In the last 3 days, we’ve received gifts from 10 people, for a total of $1,750. Wow! Our heartfelt thanks to all of you for your confidence in us and for backing this important work.
Our fundraising total is now above $6,800, well on our way toward the estimated $25,000 needed to translate, proofread, and edit the entire book. We are relying on volunteers to do many jobs, but we are paying professionals in Bamako for translation and editing.
For those of you thinking of making a donation, now is an excellent time! Having cash on hand means that we’ll be able to continue contracting with our translators. We are especially happy to send them work since they lost their language-teaching jobs with the US Peace Corps when the program closed in April due to the security crisis.
