Senegal special report

Counterpart began its work in northern Senegal in 2001, in an area where no other development organization would go. Now 10 years later, Counterpart provides a comprehensive approach to food security - keeping children in school, teaching communities the basics of a nutritious diet, and offering a sustainable long-term solution.
Filling Stomachs, Feeding Minds
Counterpart partners with the USDA to feed 22,000 children every day. Positive results are not only being seen in children’s health, but also their academic performance.
Helping Children Learn in Koranic Schools
With a better learning environment, students of Koranic schools throughout northern Senegal are now staying in school and off the streets.
Providing Much-Needed Healthcare to Mothers and Children
Counterpart has trained community health workers and rehabilitated a number of health huts throughout northern Senegal that give people easy access to healthcare and guidance.
