Contact

The organisation contacts weekly children and youth living in the streets of Dakar, Senegal, dealing with drugs problems and difficult personal histories. Most of them having been sent by their parents ( normally very poor from rural areas) to coranic schools where the abuses and bad treatments make them run away and beg in the streets. The NGO has a refuge for children where they are kept while family mediation is done by experienced social workers. Also there is a center for the youth where they learn skills as carpentry, agronomy and french language skills. Enthusiastic team with lots of innovative ideas work together to resolve this huge challenge of the country. Become a volunteer!!!

I assisted in a music education session with Village Pilote and got a good impression of a well-organised serious organisation. Very committed staff members.
