Senegal

Find out about our work in Senegal

We focus on keeping families together, and the positive impact this has on children's lives.

We've put in place effective family and community-based care models in Senegal. These models help to make sure that children get the care they need and access to vital services.

The Senegalese government has also adopted a child-protection policy that stresses the importance of family-based care. And families have been directly supported to prevent separation.

80% of parents, teachers and community members in areas where we’re working have shown improved knowledge and skills.

Our Sexual Gender Based Violence (SGVB) programme is providing access to good quality prevention and response services.

Children, families, and communities in our target areas are now better able to identify and prevent child protection risks.

The Senegalese Civil Society has also increased its involvement in public affairs, which has resulted in improvements to the governance of the rights of children and women.
