ChildFund Senegal works to improve learning and teaching methods, particularly in mathematics and reading, in its All Children Learning program. One of our most important recent achievements for education in Senegal is the Children Leaders Program, started by one of our local partner organizations. This program promotes child participation by putting the children at the center of programs and activities. Participants receive training on leadership, active citizenship, child rights, planning and budgeting and Ebola prevention.
The Daaras Plus project has improved basic education for 315 students living in a daara, or Koranic school, with a broad focus that included health status, living conditions, hygiene and economic strengthening.
