After their return to Mali, Mr. Doumbia and Mr. Amassagou organized an information-sharing session with fellow teachers, students and school administrators where they revealed teaching methodologies, technological innovations and resources in line they learned in the United States with the aim of improving the quality of education for students in Mopti.
