There is one thing you have to know before even read about this movie, and it isn't the summary: There is already a LOT of things telling the same old story of the book.How the pilot and the prince became friends, all the adventures and beyond, in other animations and endless other media. The animation and the characters are rich and lovely, the CG and the stop motion are perfect and well used. If you don't know the book, you'll read it after seeing this. And at the end of the movie you'll want a fox for you too.The status and social roles of women in Mali have been formed by the complex interplay of a variety of traditions in ethnic communities, the rise and fall of the great Sahelien states, French colonial rule, independence, urbanisation, and postcolonial conflict and progress.Forming just less than half Mali's population, Malian women have sometimes been the center of matrilineal societies, but have always been crucial to the economic and social structure of this largely rural, agricultural society.AGSP is scheduled to end in 2011, so to avoid raising expectations and to help bring the program to a responsible end, this year, as instructed by the donor, no new scholars were selected.As a result, the number of scholars this year is significantly lower than previous years.The Aviator introduces his new friend to an extraordinary world where anything is possible.A world that he himself was initiated into long ago by The Little Prince.

Primary education in Mali was compulsory up to the age of 12, but only 49.3 percent of girls (64.1 percent of boys) attended primary school during the 2005-6 school year.
Girls' enrolment in school was lower than boys' at all levels due to poverty, cultural tendencies to emphasise boys' education, and early marriages for girls.
The scholarship also covers school fees and school meals.
Remedial classes and home study groups are the mainstay of the mentoring component.
