An AFLK Scholarship Student is Making Strides in his Studies
Sep 02, 2015

Assane Sal Sow, a scholarship student who is supported by American Friends of Le Korsa, recently completed a Level 3 English course in the Amideast / Tunisia Language Course. Assane attends university in Tunisia, and is in his fourth year of studying food engineering and the food industry.

“These studies were always my dream,” Assane said. “Senegal has many agricultural products which are not transformed into food by a lack of enterprise,” he added.

Assane is now thinking about ways to use Senegal’s raw products, such as mangoes, tomatoes, bananas, and milk, to help develop a food industry throughout the country.

After graduation, Assane plans to spend a year abroad — perhaps in Canada — working in project management, so his strong English skills will be very helpful as he looks for a position. He then plans to return to Senegal to put his experience to work in the agricultural and food sectors.

Bravo, Assane! All of us at AFLK wish you luck in your fourth year!
