The children settled in quickly and the lessons were very stimulating from the first day on. I am pleased to see how active the teachers strive to create stimulating classes. This is my most favorite time, when I can partake in the daily kindergarten lessons. To involve myself with the children and help support them in different areas, so they can enjoy a versatile development. That is my utmost concern. And I am thrilled how fast the children learn and that they are dicovering their talents and interests. This is just so very important for their personal development and outlook in later life.
When I travelled to the south of Senegal for the first time, I liked the region "Casamance" right away. Although it is the poorest region of Senegal, people were kind and helpful.
But the harsh reality is unmistakable, hardly anyone has a job, and they often lack the necessary money for basic needs. All do their best to independently earn anything with a craft or artwork.

Idea, contacts, planning and assistance for projects in Senegal
Senegal is a country in West Africa. Its territory is about half the size of Germany and extends from the foothills of the Sahara in the north, where the land borders with Mauritania, to the beginning of the tropical moist forest in the south, where it meets the neighbouring states Guinea and Guinea-Bissau. It reaches the the cool Atlantic coast in the west and goes as far as the hot Sahel region on the border of Mali. The southern parts of the french-speaking Senegal, Casamance, is separated from the rest of the country by the english-speeking, small state of Gambia that reaches far into the state of Senegal from the east.
