Hello!

Seyna and I are still so excited and can't wait to .


We have some great news! We got one donation already from Stichting van Aalst. Today we have send an E-mail to a girl, who has done a project in Sengal, for a meet up. We want to ask her some questions and we would love to here about her experionses.


We are still bussy with the fundraising wich is difficult because most foundations do not support individuals, but we are still very positive and have much more options to go true.


If you guys have any quetions or tips let us know.

Hey!

Welcom back to my blog. Aida and I resently follewed a training for our volunteer work in Senegal. This training included an excirse to get to know ourselfs better, a question hour, a powerpoint presentation about volunteer work in Africa and many tips that can improve your voluntering work at the project. Almost all the people that joint the training where going to work with children. And that is why they also zoomed in on the subject ''bonding with children". Because, the problem of this matter is that the children can get too tight with one of the volunteers wat can lead to psychological problems when the volunteers will leave the project. One of the tips was that you should not foccus on one or two kids, but that you distribute your attention over the whole group.

In the training we also practised a few cases. Example: Being left alone in front of a whole class on your first day. I signed up for this case and did quite a good job, I got the class to listen to me. What is already a good beginning.

Foundation Muses also got a training named "Wijzer met kids" what is all about the development of children in a developing country, bonding with vulnerable children and how to practical prepare a lesson or activity. We also want to follow this training because we think that it will improve our contribution at the project in Saint Louis.

Today we will be focusing on fundraising. Wish us goodluck and you will read from us soon.

BYEBYE!

Hey,

I'm Seyna Diop and I am going to Senegal in November as a volunteer. To work at the general care project in Saint Louis. I will be staying here for 9 weeks. I signed up for this project with one of my closest friends, she is more like a sister to me. Both our dads come from Senegal and our mothers are from the Netherlands. We always wanted to do something for the street children (Talibe's) in Senegal. So we decided to go to Senegal, after our graduation from High-School, for 3 months, visit our famalies and work at a project of Projects Abroad.

Me and my friend Aida Meijer are both seventeen years old and I am turning eighteen at the end of our stay in Senegal. We always lived in the Netherlands and both visited Senegal a few times. We immediatly felt at home and were always sad to leave. Senegal is known for their hospitality (Teranga). They have a Beautiful culture and we are proud to be Senegalese. Living there for a few months is really number one on our bucket list. So we are very excited to join this amazing project and living with our family for 3 months.

Our urge to help the Talibe's originated at a very young age. We used to cry when we were little girls, when we saw children of our own age begging for food and money. Every time a child ran up towards us we wanted to give him/her money. But our parents told us why these kids were living on the streets.

A Talibe is a boy who study's the Koran at a Daara. This education is guided by a teacher, called a Marrabout. In most cases Talibe's leave there family to stay in the Daara. Some Marrabouts instead of teaching the Koran to the Talibe's, force them to go begging for money on the streets. They live under very bad and and dangerous circumstances. What can lead to diseases, injuries, death, ...
