Christian Aid in Senegal

We maintain a small but targeted programme in Senegal as part of our humanitarian work across the Sahel region. Our priorities include helping some of the poorest farming communities increase their yields. We also work to improve access to education, including literacy training for women and girls.

At the westernmost point of mainland Africa, Senegal is often regarded as one of the continent’s success stories. It has remained relatively stable and retains good diplomatic and economic relations with western countries; yet daily life is still a struggle for many Senegalese.

While poverty is improving, over half of rural people and a third of the urban population live below the poverty line. The country has high under-five and maternal mortality rates, where lack of food is a significant factor.

We are currently updating this page and further information will be added soon.
