Very few children in Tattaguine, Senegal are able to go to school past the 5th grade. In this mostly Muslim country on the edge of the Sahara Desert, children without education are often forced to leave their villages to find menial work in the cities. This denies the children higher education and creates a cycle of poverty that severely hinders community development.
You gift will provide school supplies for 5 children in Tattaguine, Senegal. World Vision, along with several church partners, is planning to build a secondary school in the region that would give a chance to our supported children to continue their schooling and break the cycle of poverty. This school will serve the 4 villages where Covenant members sponsor 250 children.
