In the Good Factory we tailor make help for everyone

Senegal

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.

Overview:
  • 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%

We are proud to offer you things in the Good Factory shop that have been created because, at some point in our work, the fish has been replaced by a fishing rod. It is very important to know who to send to school and who to feed first so that they can get to school at all. At the Good Factory, we tailor-make help for everyone.

Today, it is quite literally being tailored in our sewing room in Senegal. The students of the vocational school in Dakar produce for you original batik laces, laptop bags, make-up bags, baseball caps and kitchen aprons. Until a few years ago, they had nothing. Today, they have a trade in hand that makes them independent.

There is a lot of colour. We are sure you will love it.

You will soon be able to get each of these items by visiting our shop. Your purchase gives these young girls the chance to continue their education. But that’s not all. The income that their work brings in makes it possible to feed children in Congo, to replenish a pharmacy in the north of Togo, to let a patient of Rwanda’s only hospice have a tasty and nutritious meal.

We have something to brag about because the project in Senegal, like the Home Village in Greece, has just gone to the next level. By levelling the playing field for those in need, we are getting to the point where the fruits of their labour are helping others. In Senegal a tailor’s room, in Greece a farm.

Mamy się czym chwalić, bo projekt w Senegalu, podobnie jak Home Village w Grecji, wszedł właśnie na wyższy poziom. Wyrównując szanse potrzebującym, dochodzimy do momentu, kiedy owoce ich pracy pomagają innym. W Senegalu sala krawiecka, w Grecji gospodarstwo rolne.

Urgent help needed

Warm Package for Ukraine

We are providing humanitarian aid on site because the lethal danger is not only the falling rockets, but also the cold. Sleeping bags, warm blankets, paraffin lamps, rocket stoves, heaters, thermal clothing and high-energy meals: these are all things we are taking to Ukraine.
