Where We Work: Senegal

We’ve been actively advancing young people’s well-being in Senegal since 2007.

We’ve expanded our reach and diversified our impact by leveraging a variety of approaches in fields as diverse as family planning, agriculture, entrepreneurship, and information and communications technology (ICT). Our capacity building efforts have helped local partners improve how they serve youth long-term. Through YouthMap we’ve worked with local NGO Synapse Center to connect Senegalese youth with life skills through Passport to Success® training, prepare them for self-employment in agriculture, and to connect them with service learning opportunities. In addition to being home to YouthActionNet® Laureate Global Fellows, Senegal hosts a YouthActionNet® regional institute that brings together and empowers young social entrepreneurs from across Francophone Africa.
