SPONSORING IS GIVING THEM A FUTURE!

Written by Fundacion

 

A new year begins and we want to thank you for continuing with us, supporting the most important project that, in our view, is EDUCATION.


As many of you already know, this adventure began in 2002 when my wife and I, visiting a town in Senegal, decided to create what we are now, a small NGO whose main purpose was to eradicate illiteracy (90%) from the Mbackombel town and surroundings.


If at first the idea was to get as many children as possible does primary school, reality, to date, has far exceeded our expectations.


Today we already have several students finishing high school and others in professional training (nurses, electricians, hospitality, etc.), several are in university (medicine, human sciences, biology, English philology, etc.) and others are have their work (national teacher, teachers in our school, English teacher, tailor, hairdresser, etc.)


In our Residence in Mbour, there are 50 students who are studying different studies (secondary, high school and professional training in the city of Mbour), several of them also receive courses in new technologies taught by qualified volunteers, which they do, either in person or online.


All this was unthinkable when we started and today it is a reality, achieved thanks to YOU.


At the Mbackombel school, the “quarry” of this hopeful future, we have started the course with 410 students in primary school and 200 in preschool, this being the record of enrolled since our inception.


Thanking you for your support, on behalf of the Foundation, the children and their families, we wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Adaptation to the current situation.

Written by Fundacion

 

The critical situation, due to the pandemic, although in different ways, affects all countries.


In Senegal and more specifically in the area that where we operates, the regulations set by the government are followed. Schools have been closed since March, but students who have to be examined to access the next cycle (secondary, high school or university access), have to be examined and to do this they have to go to class with the measures of wearing a mask and limited the number of students to 15 per classroom.


This will be done, depending on the levels, during the summer months, a time when, in rural areas, boys normally help their parents in planting and growing millet and peanuts.


Without the help of those who have to go to school, rural life and more specifically in our town Mbackombel, the rest of the family, young and old, work the fields, plow, sow and weed, to get the product that will help them to feed during the rest of the year.


It is very important that the rains arrive and goes on during the period of growth and development of the planting.

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.


Contribute to our Education grant

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!
