Join the Foyer this #GivingTuesday
Dec 01, 2020

It’s #GivingTuesday, a day devoted to celebrating global generosity, and we are helping more young women at the Foyer de Jeunes Filles complete their education and go to college. Thanks to an anonymous donor, all donations made from now until December 31 will be doubled. We hope you will join us!

Because many young women in the rural Tambacounda region come from villages that lack secondary schools, their only option for further schooling is in the city of Tambacounda, 60km away. There, the Foyer provides these girls with a safe place to live while they go to school, and offers them after-school tutoring, career workshops, a kitchen garden, and special programs such as journalism training. It changes lives.

As student Diary Gueye said, “If I had not discovered the Foyer, I would have had to abandon my studies, because I don’t have parents who live here in Tambacounda—I am from a village. I would have had to stop studying. I couldn’t have continued. And if I had abandoned my studies, it would have been a shock to me, because I have dreamed of becoming an intellectual.”

Help more young women such as Diary realize their dreams.
