SPRING 2017 – NGOHE VILLAGE 

Ngohe is a village in Senegal, at about 85 miles from the capital Dakar. It’s a 2 hour drive from Dakar. Ngohe became famous due to its strategic location during World War II for the French army to gather soldiers to take them to France to fight against the Germans. The french maintained a small administration until the country’s independence in 1960 and finally left and never returned to develop the area. However people from the village kept their pride and stayed very conservative. People in the village primarily lived from crops grown for self consumption but with the scarcity of the rain, the field work was not always fruitful.

In the past, several non profit organizations have attempted to help however today they are all gone and the village has been abandoned. Children are attending schools sometimes with only a meal in their stomach or just nothing at all to eat. Classes are over crowded, children sit on the floor because there aren’t enough tables and chairs, children can’t afford books and school supplies, there are no extra curricular activities, the local hospital lack equipment, the list goes on and on…

Given all these challenges, children end up dropping out of school, usually in 5th grade and sometimes end up in the capital, panhandling.

Obbayo Children’s Foundation, with the help of sponsors, visited the school in Spring 2017 to bring staple food, school supplies and equipment to help the children of Ngohe village. We want to make sure children stay in school.

We invite each one of you to help either as a one time donation or monthly donation. Remember that every dollar can make a difference. We accept all sort of donations. Please contact us for more information.
