Project Report | Jun 2, 2023
We're growing along the Sine-Saloum Delta!

As part of our ongoing program expansion, we are now serving the remote island communities along the Sine-Saloum Delta of Senegal, including Bassoul, Djirnda, and Bassar! For the 2022-2023 Senegal school year, we are supporting 778 girls from primary school through university with comprehensive school scholarships, health education, and mentoring, including dozens of girls in these remote regions.

Bassoul, Djirnda, and Bassar are only accessible by boat, and girls face many challenges to attending and succeeding in school. When we expand our program to a new region, our local team members conduct a large-scale engagement meeting to introduce the goals of the program to the community, complete with drumming, dancing, and support from influential community leaders, such as school principals and local government officials. This engagement helps to build trust, and create community buy-in for our work.

Thank you for making this support possible. Together, we can envision a world where every girl has access to a high-quality education, and can decide for herself what her future holds.
