2018, has been a good year for our Foundation.

Written by Fundacion

We finished the year with the satisfaction of having been able to carry out all the projects we had planned and also one that we had not calculated to carry out.


In the course of 2018, we were able to build and equip 5 "normal" classrooms and a "laboratory" for the public school of Louly Bentegné.

This high school and baccalaureate school, which currently has 20 classrooms plus a laboratory room and offices, has been completely built by our Foundation thanks to the collaboration of the Repsol Foundation from the beginning and lately thanks to the support of Antonio Cabré Foundation and Roviralta Foundation.

In our Mbackombel's school we have felt an enormous happiness on having seen that there was an important increased in the number of inscriptions. Calculating this possibility, we have built another classroom during the year, thanks to the solidarity challange presented by Migranodearena. In the current course we have 365 students in primary and 244 in kindergartens.

Also we have construct few rooms to a family composed by a mother and three children since they had lost everything as a consequence of a fire in his house built with canes.

A tornado destroyed the roof of the offices of Soussane's College and the porch where our children eat at Mbackombel School ... we have also been able to repair it, thanks to occasional donations.

All this, along with the salary of teachers and staff (22 people) as well as the school canteen and the teacher’s residence, has been possible to finance it thanks to all those who collaborate with us through sponsorships, quotas, donations, voluntary work, etc.

Finished projects and gratifying results.

Written by Fundacion

 

At the end of February we published some photos of the projects that we had in progress and that should be finished before the rainy season. Well, we have succeeded and the three classrooms of Louly Bentegné (18 already built) for baccalaureate and Mbackombel (thirteen already built), will be operative at the beginning of the next course.

It has not been easy to achieve the project since some suppliers did not respect the delivery deadlines for the materials. Personally, I had to chase them until we got what was needed.

These two projects have been carried out thanks to the collaboration of the Repsol, Antonio Cabré (Louly Bentegné) and Roviralta (Mbackombel) foundations, and also, thanks to the funds from the contributions of our collaborators.

Another important new! Our students that are in last year of primary school have participated in a regional competition of general culture (Genie en herbe). Each team group was made up of six students who were asked questions of all kinds. Our students have been the winners!!!

New constructions and an important collaboration

Written by Fundacion

 

It’s been three months since we don’t published something in this Blog, but we have done it on Facebook. Many are the things that have happened and all are good.

We have signed an important collaboration agreement with the Foundation Antonio Cabré.

We have beaten our own record in number of sponsored.

A group of teachers and the Director of the Lycée Bon Soleil have been at our Mbackombel School, training our teachers and providing great quantity of didactic material.

We have been able to start the construction of a new classroom in Mbackombel and three in Louly Bentegné since we received the authorization of the Department of Education of Senegal, so after the construction, students of high school will be able to study the Baccalaureate without having to move to an institute located 15 kilometres away.

These two projects are realized thanks to the collaboration of the Foundations Antonio Cabré, Repsol and Roviralta.

We want to emphasize that one of the principal achievements obtained up to the date has been the increase of acceptance on the part of the parents to their children to go to school.

Letter from a volunteer and collaborator

Written by Fundacion

 

My name is Àlex Tobella and I'm 28 years old. I am currently studying Social Work at the University of Barcelona and later I would like to do a Master's degree related to International Cooperation.


For about ten years I have been interested in knowing what are the reasons that cause the differences between some countries and others. I no longer speak only about the economic aspect, also social, educational, health or infrastructure aspects. In this way I intend to be able to understand why the global sphere is going towards a more separatist and unstructured world society between one and another, when we all should have the same rights.


I have seen these social differences personally and after traveling for years in different Asian and African countries, I have understood what are the reasons that cause these huge differences. Unfortunately, my credible conclusion is: There is not a single reason; there are many reasons that explain this inequality situation. And the solution to these problems is not easy if we do not all collaborate.

 

Therefore, it is important that the first persons taking this step forward and collaborating for a fairer world are the ones who have personally seen these social differences between the rich and poor countries. As the NGO " POR UNA SONRISA EN ÁFRICA (For a Smile In Africa) does. Thanks to them and other global entities, millions of people without resources to survive have the guarantee and the possibility of exercising their rights as people. So, it is necessary to collaborate all together in order to help the entities and the people who are part of them to achieve the goal of a fairer and equitable world.


In my case, and with the help of family and friends, we have raised a sum of money that has been used to buy different school materials to help to improve the education rates of students tutored by the FOUNDATION "POR UNA SONRISA EN ÁFRICA", located in Senegal. With this small grain of sand we invite you to do the same, this message is to let us not forget that our assistance efforts are based on one principle: help those most in need.


So, with the help of all we can get a better world.

We continue to grow

Written by Fundacion

 

This year we have initiated several constructions that complement and extend the already constructed schools we have built. In our Mbackombel's school one more classroom for the smallest. In Soussane Mbadane, other one for preschoolers, 2,5 kilometers of our school, and in Soussane a classroom - laboratory for the public college of secondary.

We have to realize these extensions to be able to admit more children, due to the increase of demand by the families, of this rural zone, since they are realizing the importance that their children go to the school.

We expect to have all finished and equipped for October 9th, the start date of the school timetable in Senegal.

The foundations that have collaborated in the financing are; the Foundation Repsol and the Foundation Maria Francisca de Roviralta
