Among these populations, there is a fringe of the most vulnerable made up of children in perpetual connection with the street and commonly known as "talibé children". During this pandemic, the government urged people to stay at home, especially children. Thus, talibé children who found their daily food in the street, had to be supported with food and hygiene kits to help them cope with the pandemic.
This is the reason why Association Jeunesse Espoir posted a project with a view to associating the fantastic community of GlobalGiving which fully funded the first phase of the project which served as food and hygiene kits for 200 children from the street.
The association has extended the amount of the project which was $ 5,000 at the start to $ 10,000 because the demand was strong and we decided to do a second phase of support for these children by targeting another group of 200 children from the street to support during this covid-19 pandemic.
During the distributions each daara (place where these children are confined) received a bag of rice, a bottle of oil, a bag of paste, a box of soap and a box of packets of sugar.
During the distribution, to respect the barrier gestures against covid-19 and to avoid gatherings, the association has invited the heads of the daaras who take care of these children to come separately to the headquarters of the association to receive the donations intended to street children.
So we encourage the fantastic GlobalGiving community to continue supporting this initiative so that as many street children as possible are supported during this difficult period. We thank all the donors who kindly contributed to make this humanitarian aid operation possible. special mention to Al-Rashid who made a large donation which completed the first phase of the project. we encourage them all to support us more for better care for street children in Saint-Louis, Senegal.
