Most of the primary schools in Senegal are public so why My Medina? The President was born in Medina and grew up there. However, unlike most of the kids living there, he had the chance to go to schools in the city center of Dakar where his schoolmates were mainly from wealthy families. Some of his neighbours and friends didn’t even go to school because their parents couldn’t buy them the necessary schools supplies. This unequal situation motivated him to help his city since early age. he always wanted to do positive action to help Medina.
Many people did not finish the primary school courses because of the lack of money (buying school supplies …). So he felt touched by this cause and today he would like to help and give his support to all the children in Medina that still have the chance to go to public school by offering them the schools supplies.
This project aims to assist and provide support to the education of children of Medina.
I invite all those who can, to carry out a good deed in order to help their neighbourhood. #MyMedina for the development of education. We want to give children what they need.
Helping a child to succeed will benefit to the whole family.
