The Mali Project

Introductory Message from Fritz-Earle S. McLymont,                                                 Managing Director, NMBC Global

On July 22, 2011, I had the great privilege of being appointed a Wanadu Aroo (advisor) to the Amiiru Songhoy, Paramount Chief Dr. Hassimi O. Maiga. In this role I decided to address the urgent need for food security by committing to the development of an integrated agricultural project in Mali. The management of the National Minority Business Council, Inc.,  supports this initiative.

Today, the country of Mali is in turmoil. A serious humanitarian crisis is evident. This requires action on our part, and the first step is to share the information available and accessible to us. This Mali Project section of our web site will keep you abreast of the situation.
