Mali is one of the poorest nations on earth. Local churches seek to share good news in word and deed, but the challenges of poverty and corruption are great. Literacy rates are as low as 15%, and Mali faces the present danger of civil war. United World Mission began making disciples among the Malinke people in the 1950s. Today, we partner with local churches for leadership development, discipleship, radio ministry, and church-planting among unreached groups.
