Health Awareness/Prevention

Our scholars and their families receive health and wellness education, as well as training on disease prevention, through workshops. This education helps scholars and their families prevent health-related school absences.

Health talks cover topics including Female Genital Mutilation, the dangers of early marriages, personal hygiene, STIs and HIV/AIDS.

Our health-training programs in Senegal have reached hundreds of our scholars and their parents and provide nearly 400 scholars with health insurance.
