Diapalante’s Path Through Coronavirus
Cornavirus has changed life for everyone! Diapalante in the UK is working hard to rebuild our tattered fundraising program while our partners in West Africa are adapting to their new challenges. The Diapalante Community Education Centre in Kaolack, Senegal, is finding opportunities among the challenges. For example, a successful story book project ran last year and we have new literacy classes for street children.
Creating Books Children Will Love
Our teenage Young Leaders in Senegal have been working with volunteer illustrators in the UK during coronavirus lockdown. They have created beautiful and much needed reading books relating to life in Senegal. The books are used in the Centre library and published on africanstorybook.org.
We have been working with local communities in Mauritania and Senegal since 2005. Find out more about our projects.
