Oct-25 Saturday Dokotoro Project Fundraiser Albany
The Dokotoro Project was started two years ago by a group of Mali RPCVs to translate the book "Where There is No Doctor" into Bambara for use in West Africa. Our translators have finished over 70 percent of the book, but we need to raise funds to finish the book, hopefully in early 2015. So we're holding our third annual Fall Fundraiser, and this year it's in the East Bay! We will have two live bands, lots of African food and drinks, beer, wine, and of course great company. Please join us! [?]
