  • PPT Slide Notes: a Microsoft Word document containing the text for the PowerPoint presentation.

Supplemental Documents (Microsoft Word Documents)

This information can also be found on the Amman Imman website. I’ve placed the documents here for easy access since they answer technical questions about Amman Imman’s initial plans, technical descriptions and future goals.

  • Amman Imman Pilot Phase Summary (updated 12/10/06)
  • Amman Imman Immediate and Long-Term Benefits (added 12/10/06)
  • Overview on Health, Water and Food in the Azawak (added 12/10/06)
  • Ariane Kirtley's Resume (updated 12/10/06)
I especially recommend downloading the PowerPoint Presentation. This presentation, filled with beautiful photos, poignantly illustrates the imperative need behind Ariane's mission to help the people of the Azawak. The goals of Amman Imman are reported in a highly readable document that will not only provide the necessary information to assist your fundraising efforts, but will also educate your audience. I’ve also included, separately, a document containing the notes for the PowerPoint Slides, useful as you practice the presentation. Please review the presentation; feel free to tailor it to the presenter or audience in your school and community. For example, it probably should be shortened for student presentations.

Once again, as a courtesy, please email to let me know that you have downloaded the files. Also, If you have any trouble downloading, please email me and I will try to help.
