Our Senegal office was officially opened in 2018 through a strategic partnership with CECI. We are currently taking part in the Uniterra volunteer-cooperation program in the country but also have a major focus on gender-equality programming. With funding from Global Affairs Canada, we are running our flagship gender transformative program, “Scaling Her Voice On Air,” which aims to make major inroads in transforming unequal gender norms and encouraging improved agricultural practices for farmers in the target regions of Matam, Saint-Louis and Kolda.
