¡ FIFTEEN YEARS ON THE FRONT LINE !

 

In February of 2002, Asun Fiochi and Mario Llonch, happened to go for the fist time to the village of Mbackombel. This village is located in the middle of the Senegalese Savannah and at that point, people from that village didn't have any infrastructure, not even proper houses.

 

The only thing they had, were two small nursery classrooms, run by the sisters of l'Immaculé Conception.

 

Asun and Mario, made the decision to create a Foundation to help the children in this area.

 

Fifteen years later, Mbackombel looks a completely different town. Now they have houses made of cement blocks and a Nursery and Primary School, with 17 classrooms and 510 children attending classes - all managed by the Foundation.

 

In addition to this, other projects have been completed: a boarding school for the secondary children was built in the city of Mbour, a woman’s centre where they are supported and helped and a maternity clinic where more than 5,000 patients have attended and there are over 200 deliveries a year. In addition to this in order to meet the needs of the Senegalese State, a furthers 30 classrooms and two administrative offices have been built, where more than 1,800 children attend classes.

 

To be able to personally control and track the progress of all these projects, Mario and Asun live in Mbackombel an average of six months a year.

CONTRIBUTION

 

We are very pleased to announce that this month we have been fortunate to receive two very important contributions that will benefit two important groups: Older people with cataract problem who need surgery and also our sponsored children that need glasses.


These two contributions that have come at the same time are:


1- The Fundación Barraquer has sent us two ophthalmologists, who selected 149 among more than 1000 consulted, to whom Dra. Elena Barraquer will operate during her visit in January.


2- The Fundación Cione (La ruta de la Luz), co-funded by the Fundación Repsol, than has sent us two optometrists, who have been in charge of checking the vision of more than 500 children from our school and who will later provide us 150 glasses that would be needed.


Our sponsors and their elders are very grateful for these "visits".


It is very important for our Charity that these organizations have trusted us.

Collaborations between institutions

 

Since last year, we have a collaborative relationship between our Charity and "Foment", who have provided us with Toshiba’s computer equipment.


This year "Foment del Treball" has strengthened its collaborative relationship for the projects that our Charity is carrying out in Senegal.

 

Both institutions have decided to extend the agreement over the next two years, and the alliance has been agreed and signed by the President of Por una Sonrisa en África, Mario Llonch; and the president of "Foment del Treball", Joaquim Gay Montellà.

We are expanding

 

We have a new classroom in our school in  Mbackombel !!!

Thank you to the Association “Pescadores por Senegal”, led by Herminia Arellano, we have been able to build a new classroom. Therefore, the children that were temporarily studding in the library will now be relocated in this new classroom.

This classroom will be the third one sponsored by this Association.

 The amount of children enrolling is constantly increasing due to the work that we have been doing during the past years, educating the families, showing them how important the education is for their children's future.

For the next academic year, we will need a new classroom and .... more children to be sponsored!!!

As a reward for our students of elementary school Mbackombel , we have established a prize for the top 5 of the secondary entrance exam, consisting of enrolling them in the best school in the city of Mbour and hosting them in our residence .

 

In the final assessment, our student, Fatou Ndour , has obtained the best score of the whole school of St. Esprit with an average of 9.8.

 

The other four “winner students have exceeded the average of 7.5.

 

Our school is considered by the Mbour Department of Education, as the one with best results in evaluating access to secondary.

¡More children, more classrooms!

 

                                       Click here to enter and cooperate

In 2002 we started building Mbackombel school and since then, the number of children enrolled has increased each year.

In the past year, we had 360 students and currently there are nearly 400 registered and a waiting list.

We had to enable the library as a classroom and most of the classes are overcrowded. To this we must add the fact that more parents is constantly coming to the school to try to enroll their children.

We need your solidarity to help to build more classrooms.

¡¡¡YOUR CONTRIBUTION (from 5 €) WILL BECOME A GREAT CHRSTMAS GIFT!!!

Six classrooms and offices Soussane.

 

Little by little we are building, step by step, the secondary school in the community of Sandiara, Senegal.

 

They are currently operating six classrooms where 250 children are pursuing their studies.

 

Thanks to the Repsol Foundation, we have also been able to build what they call "administrative building”. Everything has been built according to standards established by the Ministry of Education.

 

With this realization, we encourage students in the area, largely avoiding school drop since the proximity favors them in their desire to continue their studies.

 

This is a project carried out in stages, depending on the means we have.

Our children’s vacation

In Europe, as the school year begins in September, our children (for many of you, your sponsored child) do not start until early October.

 

This is because you have the rainy season has not ended yet and therefore they cannot collect what they sow in late June.

 

During the holidays, they have spent working in the fields, helping their parents. Boys with farm work and livestock and girls helping their mothers, fetching water, doing the laundry and taking care of younger siblings.

 

Normally the kids life always takes place in the village and its surroundings. Many of them do not even know other towns.

 

This kind of life, does not make them unhappy, you can see them always happy, as if his "work" was entertainment.

Success in our school

In late October, we opened a kindergarten classroom in Balabougou, financed 75% by “Pescadores por Senegal”-Senegal Fishermen NGO (Herminia Arellano). 64 children signed up.
 
We build  these classrooms so that more children in the villages, next to our school (3 km approx) could start their studies when they have more than 5 years old and can walk the distance that separates them from the school.
 
We opened the registration for the next academic year (2015-2016) this month and we already have 77 new students registered. This requires us to build one more classroom and we will do it, even though that was not planned in this year’s Budget!
 
If you want to help us to finance the construction or to sponsor  one of our children, please visit the next link: http://puse.org/en/collaborate.html
