Achievement at a glance
After our first year, we have sponsored 15 orphans and disadvantaged children so far, providing them free access to education. We also have sponsored 5 families / disabled women, providing them food staples on a monthly basis. We have founded four sister associations in France, Senegal, Gambia and Luxemburg contributing to this initiative.
Challenges faced in implementation
Our next step on mid term is to sponsor all the orphans and disadvantaged children enlisted in the boarding school at this time, appr. 20-25. On the long term, by end of 2017, we are aiming to build a boarding school complex with social and medical care facilities in Taiba Niassene, a village in the Kaolack region.
