Stories from Senegal

Fatou N’Doye is one of the 157.600 estimated 2017 benificiairies of Close the Gap projects in Africa. She is the leading nurse at Gainthe Pathé in Senegal. She is responsible for the district with 6 small health centres.   Her district is located in a remote rural area with limited access to training facilities (2 hours by 4X4).  As part of Close the Gap’s on-going projects, Fatou has been recently trained to use a computer.  She uses her laptop to keep track of the medication stock, to perform administrative tasks and to follow continuing education remotely.

Another beneficiary is Abdourahime Ndiaye. He is director of the school in Macka Gaye with 61 students.   His school now benefits a laptop, which enables Abdourahime to better prepare his lessons, to improve their quality and ultimately increase his students’ motivation.  He is now also able to print his lessons to share with his students, (which he does at the nearest city accessible via 1 hour motorbike driving through sandpaths).
