Update on the Youth Emergency Shelter in Senegal

GO Local Hero Issa and his team are already far into a project funded by GO last December. They are renovating and expanding upon their emergency shelter for talibé youth at Maison de la Gare’s center in Saint Louis, Senegal. In 2014, GO Campaign helped build this shelter. The completion of these new renovations and expansions will more than double the capacity of the emergency shelter, and allow the separation of older youth (who may be engaged in delinquency) from the young children. Following detailed planning in January, site preparation began at the beginning of February. As of the end of March, construction of the building extension is over two-thirds complete. Construction is expected to finish by late summer 2024!
