The Microfinance project aims to help disadvantaged young people who have little chance of entering the job market to become economically independent. The project grants loans to former talibés (Senegalese street children) and disadvantaged women. The loans allow the individuals to build their own businesses. The project provides not only financial support but also works to assess the needs and unique situations of the beneficiaries. The aim is to promote economic independence, social development and dignity in vulnerable people.

In this programme, volunteers work with local Senegalese staff at the centre in St. Louis. They will accompany beneficiaries on their path to becoming economically independent by training beneficiaries on business management basics, constructing financial plans and giving loans.

Journée Typique

A typical day will start with waking up and having breakfast at your host-family's house. After that, you will either walk (most host-family's are located on walking distance) or take a taxi to your project location. At 9 in the morning, you meet with your supervisor and other volunteers. Together you will continue on your task: where you get to work with the participants of the Microfinance project, and for example work on a financial businessplan together. 

At 12:30 PM,  you get to enjoy a long afternoon break, where you can have a nice West-African lunch, go to the beach, the market or swimming pool, or just relax with your fellow volunteers. From 16:00  untill 18:30 in the evening, your project continues. In the evening, you can have dinner with your host family or for example go to a restaurant with other volunteers, and afterwards enjoy a nice bar or do other fun activities.  Project days are usually monday till friday, so you have the afternoons, evenings and weekends to do sightseeing, relaxing, and exploring Senegal with your fellow volunteers! Off-days outside of the weekends have to be debated with the supervisors, all depending on the length of your stay. But once again: ASF always tries to be as flexible as possible, to meet the wishes of our volunteers!

Activités de Loisir

In your free time, you can explore Senegal or other neigboring West-African countries with other volunteers! In Senegal, you can visit the beautiful beaches of Saint-Louis or Cap Skirring, the Lompoul desert, the Pink Lake, the Seashell Island (Joal-Fadiouth), or Ile de Gorée which has a very intriguing history of slave-trade. Also, you can visit several wildparks with exotic animals or beautiful bird-parks. Besides, the city of Saint-Louis is a very vibrant and lively city, with lots of art, beautiful architecture and history, and a vibrant nightlife with various clubs, good restaurants and bars.

Services de Aider Sans Frontières

Aider Sans Frontières is a non-profit organisation, so all costs go towards your project, accommodation and food. Prices include accomodation, food, water, staff support and transfer to and from the airport. The food included in the price entails three meals a day: so breakfast, lunch and dinner. Special food requirements such as vegetarian is often no problem! Pick up from the international airport in Dakar to ASF and your host family in Saint-Louis is done by a very friendly and experienced staff member of ASF. Transparency is an important value to ASF so for a breakdown of costs please contact us for further explanation.

Transfert de l'aéroport Blaise Diagne International Airport
Transfer to and from the airport is done by one of our experienced and very friendly staff members. The drive to and from the international airport in Dakar to Saint-Louis, where ASF and your host family is based, takes about 3.5 hours. 

However, this is optional and volunteers can decide to organise it on their own.

Logement
Our standard accommodation included in the price of your project is host family accommodation. We will match you with a local family who will look after you and give you three meals a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner) included in the price. Special food requirements such as vegetarian is often no problem! Our families are friendly, warm and welcoming and fully checked. ASF only works with host families who we've knows for many years and who get great reviews from former volunteers. Host family accommodation is clean but not luxurious. You have either your own room or you can share one with another volunteer if they are present in Senegal in the same period as you are.
