Diapalante is a UK-based charity which works with local partners on small, community projects in West Africa. We work within communities, providing financial support and technical expertise in order to help people achieve their goals.
Our name is taken from the regional Wolof language and means ‘working together in solidarity’. We build long-term relationships with our partners, listening to their needs and working with them to see what support we can provide.
All of our projects are put forward and run by local representatives.
Caroline Chandler will be running for Diapalante in the 2019 London Marathon on 28th April. Good Luck Caroline. To sponsor Caroline visit her Virgin Money Giving page.
We have been working with local communities in Mauritania and Senegal since 2005. Find out more about our projects.
