Since we opened the first adult school in Kafountine we haven’t stopped working to enlarge and improve and we now have 3 schools, 2 in Senegal and 1 in The Gambia, and every year all of them have many students eager to learn.
Our aim is to end illiteracy by starting school at any early age. When young children attend school their mothers can work freely and the older siblings can also attend school, rather than be at home looking after their brothers and sisters. Actually we have one school in Kabar neighbourhood (open since 2011) and we are building a new one in the neighbourhood of Santossou.
