We have been busy since our last update:
Supporting 20 vulnerable young people currently in horticulture training
Developing 2 new partnerships with vocational training centres in Saint-Louis to provide more training options: car mechanics and solar energy
Recruiting 40 Koranic pupils to enrol in these training courses
Providing all our beneficiaries with ongoing support and follow-up through the “Follow-up and Integration Office” at the CIPA centre
Expanding our work to Dakar and developing a new partnership with a vocational training centre in Guédiawaye
As we expanded our reach, so did our team! In Saint-Louis, Mr Khalifa Thiam has come to reinforce the team, while in Dakar, Mr Abdou Kebe is our brand new Project Manager. We are very excited to have them on board!
Last but not least, we are delighted to be partnering up with the 3FPT (The Senegalese Government Fund for Vocational Training) for the new cohorts. This has been our goal from the beginning! We look forward to working together to make the vocational education system more accessible and inclusive.
