It is estimated that at least 30,000 children are homeless in Senegal’s capital, Dakar. According to the United Nations, this is the largest concentration of street children in the world. Thousands of children are vulnerable to physical abuse and neglect.
In order to help, a group of volunteers established the orphanage, Chemin Du Futur (Path to the Future), to nurture and educate these young people.
Since 2011, Fraternity Without Borders has supported this project through our sponsors’ monthly donations. The orphanage provides the children a disciplined routine, education, health care, music, sports and vocational training. We also cultivate an on-site vegetable garden and run a poultry farm with the goal of making the project self-sustaining, as it provides vocational training for these young people.
Through the continued support of our sponsors, we are working together to make profitable activities like this thrive and to provide support to more street children.
