With a population of nearly 16.5 million (2015), Mali is placed at 176 out of 187 countries on the United Nations Human Development Index with 50% of the population are living in extreme poverty on less than $1.25/day, and the majority of the population residing in rural areas. Though there is insufficient data to enable the status of widows and orphaned children at national level to be captured, there are a large number of women who are widowed with the responsibilities for raising their children without any means of support. There are also children heads-of-households who have lost one or two of their parents and are left without any means of support to continue their education and fulfil their basic needs in the house. Islamic Relief Mali country office is supporting nearly 3090 orphans with its one-to-one support programme, assisting with regular and sufficient financial support to enable these children to fulfil their basic needs of food, shelter, clothing and education. During the regular visits of the IR Mali Orphans team to orphan households it has become evident that the living conditions, particularly the housing conditions, of some orphans are in a very bad and deteriorated state. Exposing them to sunshine during the dry season, flooding and rain during the rainy season and to dust and mites. There are no facilities such as washing facilities and latrines which pose a risk of many health problems for the children and their families. It is with this consideration Islamic Relief has proposed this intervention to improve the living conditions of orphans within Bamako and Ouelessebougou where basic facilities such as a washing room, latrines and study room are not met.
