EPHRATA is a Malian’s-founded, Christian faith-based community transformation and development organization.

Its vision is to contribute to the emergence of a new Mali, through children and young people, into a Just, Free and Prosperous Nation where the will of God in Jesus Christ reigns.

Its mission is to promote the participation of children and youth and to use sport, games and community transformation and development tools to mobilize and assist local churches and communities to fear God and to be empowered through the improvement of their spiritual, social and economic conditions. This is done with a focus on promoting human rights in general and the right of the child in particular.

The members of the association are aware that they are in Mali by the sovereign choice of God to live as disciples and ambassadors of Jesus Christ in order to contribute to the advancement of the kingdom of God and its justice. In obedience to the Bible, we are obliged to share the love and compassion of Jesus Christ with the Malian, African and world people for the glory of God.

  1. provide assistance in the protection of the right, the teaching of their civic and human duty and the development of children, adolescents and young people;
  2. assist in the development and promotion of biblical spiritual and moral values, sport and games for children, adolescents and youth;
