Make a lasting difference by renovating schools or building shelters for street children. The renovation and construction project aims to provide Talibés - which are Senegalese street children - and other disadvantaged groups with a better environment for educational and social development. The volunteers and the local staff will help paint, renovate and refurbish daaras (shelters for the street children, or Talibés) or build schools for the disadvantaged children and communities.

An important aim is to create dignified accommodation in which the Talibé children can have significantly improved living conditions. Every single former volunteer who participated in this project, describes their experience as hugely impactful for both the Talibés and Senegalese communities as for themselves. A typical renovation & construction program would be as follows. Volunteers for example work on painting and cleaning up two different schools with their supervisor and fellow volunteers. The children who the schools are renovated for, are truly grateful and happy when they see the changes made to their school. Former volunteers describe an incredible thankfulness from all the children, everyone hugging together and seeing a lot of smiles. It has changed both of their lives so much and provided everyone with a great experience they will never forget.

Typical day

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: which can for example be painting a schoolbuilding for the Senegalese street-children. 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 woth 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!

Free-time activities

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.

Serviços incluídos

Services by 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. Flights and insurance are NOT included in the price. Transparency is an important value to ASF so for a breakdown of costs please contact us for further explanation.
Airport Pickup at 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.

Accommodation
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 included in the price.  Our families are friendly, very welcoming and fully checked. Host family accommodation is clean but not luxurious. You can have your own room, or either choose to share a room with other volunteers if they are present at the same time as you.
Guest Family
Food & Beverages

Food and water entails breakfast, lunch and dinner, so three meals a day. Any special food requirements, such as vegetarian meals, is often no problem at all! 

Internet Access
Limited access at the project site
What's NOT included?
Visa, flights, travel insurance or vaccinations are NOT included in the program fees.
Flight Tickets
The nearest airport is Blaise Diagne International Airport (DSS) in Dakar. We assist you to find cheap flights to Senegal.
Travel Insurance
Going abroad is an adventure and it is always best to be prepared. Sudden illness or injury, cancellation or theft - a travel insurance for Senegal provides security and is a plus to have.
Vaccines
If you are intending to volunteer in Senegal you should seek medical advice before starting your social journey. Check your required vaccinations for Senegal.
