Donate a day of education to a student


A country in western Africa, bordered by the Atlantic Ocean. It became independent of France on the 4th of April 1960. It is one of the most politically stable countries in Africa. Nevertheless, it remains among the countries with the lowest level of social development. Almost a half of the country’s area is occupied by farming land, but farming is becoming increasingly difficult due to frequent climate shocks. The highest temperature of 48.8 °C has been recorded in Matam.

  • 38% of the society lives below the threshold of poverty, that is, for less than 1.90 USD per day
  • the employment rate in Senegal is 50.6%
  • 44% of the working population is engaged in farming
  • only 13.9% of the population aged 25 or more has any post-elementary education
  • the literacy index among the youth aged 15 to 24 is 69.8%

The grass may not be greener here, but the mangoes are certainly sweeter. Foyer students are honing their skills in the school kitchen, preparing all-organic jams from fruit that has ripened in the Senegalese sun.

And on this occasion, we want to show you how every penny you donate turns into good that transforms people’s lives.

In the beginning, there is a huge order – the Foyer makes sure that the products you buy are of great quality and harvested in a way that does not exploit either the land or the people who do this hard work. Every single penny you give is a mango that is already feeding someone at this stage. The mangoes make their way to our kitchen, where a dozen or so schoolgirls patiently peel, slice, cook and blend them, then pack them into jars.

Each jar sold is a promise of a new future. The proceeds from the sale of one jar have the power to create five more. It’s a true factory of good that simply pays for itself and adds another link to this ecosystem. This is how more students can start their education. This is how good is born! This is how lives are changed!

Skilled workers are at a premium in Senegal – market interest is growing at twice the rate that schools are able to supply them. Sister Ewa knows this very well, which is why, when she manages the school in Dakar, she makes sure that the students graduate with a specific trade in hand. And not just one!

In order for this wonderful project to keep going and give more female students a chance, and for more products to leave the Foyer and work for the greater good, we need your support. Donate a day of education to a student!
