One third of all schools in Mopti in Mali does not work and many of them lack for example drinking water and toilets, which makes them particularly unsafe for girls. When children do not go to school or when their education is limited, their personal development is hampered. It creates more young people who are susceptible to join armed groups and end up in crime. The school plays a major role in the mental health of children and adolescents and for the development of the victims of conflict

areas. A well functioning school brings back a sense of normality, structure and security that make it possible for families to look forward and plan for the future. This also improves the potential of society to reduce and manage conflicts.

This season, the surplus from Billie Bracelet goes to building a safe school in Mali. The school will have three classrooms with room for 150 students. There will be school benches, black boards, separate toilets for girls and boys and books and pens for the children.

We are proud of our cooperation with the Children's Fund and hope you feel the same warmth when wearing the Billie Bracelet.

Thank you for your effort.
Together we help to give more people the chance for a better future!
