SENEGAL, SOUPA SERERE

CONTEXT

Senegal’s educational system faces many challenges. While the country offers free, compulsory education up to age 16, many students drop out due to poverty and a lack of resources. This is particularly true of female students who begin working at an early age, marry young, or become pregnant.

As a result, participation depends largely on the individual family’s prosperity. And, once children drop out it’s difficult for them to return for further education (be it academic or vocational).

A general inaccessibility of educational materials only worsens the situation. (E.g. only 25 percent of the population use the internet due to poor connectivity.)

PROJECT IMPLEMENTATION

Twenty Acronis employees from different countries will take part in the hands-on construction of the school in Senegal. The team will gather in November 2018 to build the school together.

Participants will support many activities, including digging, picking, sifting, mixing concrete, making bricks and tying rebar on a trek. Beyond the worksite experience, participants will enjoy a cultural exchange with host families and locals.
