Top of the English welcome page of the new website
Maison de la Gare has just launched its totally renewed website, now in both French and English. Volunteer Michaël Gobert of France developed the new site while he was in Saint Louis, working with Issa Kouyaté, Aladji Gaye, Mapaté Bousso and other volunteers and members of the Maison de la Gare team. The result is spectacular, a wonderful resource for learning about this organization dedicated to improving the lives of the begging talibé street children.
The sliding window on the welcome page is a magical entry into Maison de la Gare’s many activities ... clicking here is an opening to the myriad ways in which this organization is changing lives. New entries will be added regularly to this page, so regular visits can be very rewarding! We have added linkages with social networks so that you can easily share these exciting developments with your friends, and play your role in promoting Maison de la Gare’s activities.
Other pages introduce Maison de la Gare, its origins, its aspirations and people. A page is dedicated to the talibé children themselves, and provides links to the most current developments in understanding and addressing this unconscionable human rights abuse.
For those who want to contribute, a large section of the site presents Maison de la Gare’s volunteer program, and the many different roles that volunteers can play. A comprehensive volunteer manual, developed with the help of earlier volunteers, provides all the information needed for a safe and rewarding experience working with the talibé street children.
This new site is a rich resource for everyone wishing to understand, and change, the lives of the talibé street children.
