One more year, we want to inform about the TREINTA200MIL matchfunding that we have joined at migranodearena.org. In order for 200 students to continue their secondary, baccalaureate, vocational training and / or university studies, and thus combat school dropout; At our Foundation we support their higher education through this education grant. Additionally, continuing education helps eradicate marriages of convenience, allowing more girls to have a better future.


How can you help


Our goal is to reach the sum of € 2,000 before June 30. Click on the link to collaborate and ensure that next year more boys and girls can continue studying. Thank you very much for your support. Greetings.

Like any other country, Senegal has been forced to take exceptional measures to combat the expansion of COVID-19.


By ministerial order, we have closed our Mbackombel school, the Balabougou, Wirtheboky and Soussane Mbadane nursery classes, as well as the Mbour Residence.

But considering that this action was not enough, our new Co-Director and volunteer, Judit Serra, took the initiative to plan a direct action that could help the inhabitants of the small towns, where our students reside.

To this end, the last April 8th, we set up a caravan, consisting of a truck and two cars, headed by Judit Serra and Celine Diouf (director of the Residence), Gane Kama (former student of our school who is currently in 6th year of Medicine ), as well as a couple of students. They visited the towns, where in each one of them  Gane Kama made an awareness talk, and they also distributed rice sacks, masks, gloves, liquid soap , alcohol gel, etc.

It was a very hard day, intense but emotional at the same time. The day didn't help much as temperatures of up to 43º were registered in the shade.

Our thanks to all who have collaborated to carry out this action; as well as to those who regularly collaborate with our Foundation!

The importance of volunteers

Written by Fundacion

 

Volunteers are a fundamental part of a nonprofit organization like ours. Their knowledge and dedication fill an important gap in our work, as we do not have enough resources to hire people of their level.

Recently we are receiving offers from many people interested in collaborating with our Foundation.

Among the new volunteers we would highlight, for their involvement in the time of collaboration, the following people: José María Catot Riera, Dr. In Computer Science and currently Director of Technology at the Foundation. Judit Serra Ballester, Bachelor of International Relations, Co-director of the Foundation and presently living in the field, both are permanent volunteers. Clara Gregori Pla, Doctor in Physics, on-site and distance teacher of ICT courses and Carles Viñeta Viladecans, Information Systems Engineer as a long-term volunteer in Senegal.

Everyone participates at the New Technologies project by giving courses to a pre-selected group of students from our Mbour residence as well as english classes to all students residing there.

Also, as we stated in the blog of august, we had the support of four students and a professor coming from the UPC of Manresa.

During this month of January, for the second consecutive year, Dr. María Gómez Rodríguez, a health volunteer, is visiting and collaborating with us.

Our gratitude to all those volunteers who have collaborated and collaborate with our Foundation!

Start of the new course 2019/2020

Written by Fundacion

 

We have started the course normally, even though the rainy season has ended late. In Mbackombel we have ten primary classrooms and three kindergartens classes working at full gas, in addition to five preschool classrooms, located in nearby towns.


The total amount of students studying in our foundation school is 397 in elementary school and 240 in preschool, which makes a total of 637 students, 28 more than last year.


This year we have started English classes for the students of the last two courses and the teacher is an old student of the foundation. With him there are already 4 teachers who learned in our school and now they have become teachers of the young generations!


We continue to train our high school graduates


At the Residence we have in Mbour, during the months of October, and November, the volunteer Clara Gregori, who has a PhD in Physics, has been teaching Advanced Web Programming  courses to a group of students and she will continue giving the course until the end of December.


We invite you to be “achievers” of new sponsors.


Sponsorship contributions are a fundamental basis for our school growth.

Technology reaches our students

Written by Fundacion

 

A few months ago the Director of Technology of our Foundation, José Mª Catot, contacted the coordinator of the Degree in Engineering in ICT Systems of the School of Mines of the UPC of Manresa, Professor Jordi Bonet, in order to study the possibility of organizing a group of volunteers to travel to our student residence in Mbour-Senegal to give an intensive course of different activities within the field of information and communication technologies (ICTs).


At the same time, we requested computers from the REUTILITZA Program https://reutilitza.upc.edu/ca which is part of the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC) and accepting our petition they donated us seven laptops.


Engineering degree of this EPSEM school at the UPC in Manresa moved to Senegal at the end of July to Finally, a group of four students (David Màrquez, Irene Mollet, Joan Antoni Riera and Marta Viñas) and Professor Albert Babí, from the ICT Systems introduce our students in the use of new technologies and to monitor the installation of the residence's photovoltaic system. (See activities carried out on the web-blog https://mvinaslobez.wixsite.com/senegal2019?lang=en.)


It has been three and a half weeks of intense activity with a group of enthusiastic students who have remarkably assimilated the course learned and at the same time the experience has created a very good student-teacher relationship.


We hope to repeat next year this experience of partnership between the UPC and our Foundation.
