Support for the health care of girls

By Fara Ndiaye | Executive Director

In order to support vulnerable girls enrolled in the project to support the education of 50 girls, Association Jeunesse Espoir supported the health of 200 students through their enrollment in the health coverage system set up by the government of Senegal.

This health insurance system was funded in part by donations received from GlobalGiving and most of it was funded by the Embassy of Portugal in Senegal. It is by working at the local level to find and strengthen partnerships that can help achieve the objectives set in terms of supporting girls' education and health that our organization has been able to benefit from the support of the Embassy of Portugal for health care of the schools.

Why this year we are interested in the health of the children supervised within the framework of this program? We realized during our evaluations that the lack of support for the health of the beneficiaries had a negative impact on the educational performance of the students.

This is the reason why we went beyond the 50 beneficiary girls with the support of the embassy by enlisting 200 vulnerable children for their health care.

For this support we received the Ambassador at our headquarters in Saint-Louis du Senegal (West Africa) for a first working visit, and a second day for a ceremony of distribution of health cards for the hospital. current academic year.

The second day of the Ambassador’s visit saw the holding of the ceremony for the distribution of annual health care cards to beneficiary children of the municipality of Ross-Béthio in the Saint-Louis region. So the convoy left Saint-Louis around 9 am to arrive at its destination around 10 am.

On arrival at the town hall, the delegation was received with honors by the local elected officials of the municipality of Ross-Béthio. There followed a meeting in the large hall of the municipality with the Mayor and local elected officials who welcomed His Excellency while magnifying the support of the Portuguese Embassy and GlobalGiving for vulnerable children.


Then, His Excellency's delegation, the AJE team and local elected officials went to the CDAF in Ross-Béthio where the ceremony is being held and where nearly 500 people were waiting for us: women, children, guests, etc. There was a warm welcome to the sound of drums and music to welcome His Excellency the Ambassador of Portugal to Senegal.


After the establishment of the delegation the various speeches of the mayor and other authorities, the final speech was made by the Ambassador where he returned to the importance of supporting children in this project and his commitment to perpetuate this support in the future with the Association Jeunesse Espoir.


At the end of the ceremony, the press interviewed His Excellency who kindly answered questions from journalists from several different press organs at regional and national level. the Executive Director of the Association Jeunesse Espoir did not fail to magnify the so important contribution of the donors of GlobalGiving since the beginning of this project while hoping that this fantastic community of GlobalGiving will continue to support this project so important for girls' education.
