Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who came out to our Open House & Welcome Day in spite of the crazy storm - nearly 30 of you beat the weather and were hunkered in William Byrd's lovely Grace Arents Library to share Chef MaMusu's Ginger-Bissap Tea, Goree African Restaurant's Peanut Sauce, good Malian music. Showing off Mali is our favorite way to introduce Richmonders to our sister city, Segou, and to Africa, in general. Our new bilingual SOL-ready storybook, Djita, a Malian Girl from Virgina, was available for sale, autographed by the author, VFOM founder Robin Edward Poulton. 

This event was an introduction to Virginia Friends of Mali so you can find out who we are, what we do, what we'd like to do and how you can be a part! If you missed it, we will do it again in March 2012, but you can always just email and one of our enthusiastic members will be right back in touch. 

Happy Holidays to One and All!
