Saturday, May 4, 2013 I was reporting in the Mali “Dogon Country”  with Mr Jurriaan Van Stigt, President of the Dogon Education Foundation (Stichting Onderwijs Dogon).

Mr Jurriaan Van Stigt is a Dutch architect heavily involved in the development of the Mopti Region, especially the “Dogon Country”.

His foundation has done very good work in this part of the Mopti Region. Among its many accomplishments we have:

• The construction of 22 schools (built 100% with stabilized mud)

• 97 wells and dams built

• Organization of water management

• Promotion of improved stoves and solar lights

• Tree Planting

• Fighting against malaria

  • Dunes stabilization

• etc..

This first contact with Mr Jurriaan gave me a very good impression. Previously, he contacted me after seeing my films on the “What If We Change” project website. He’ll be back in Holland this week and intends to meet the staff of “What If We Change” to explore possibilities for a future collaboration.
