500 FOR 500
WHY THIS MATTERS
In the streets of Dakar, Senegal, you will see boys begging with tin cans in hand. These are the Talibe boys, who are supposedly studying the Koran under the religious leadership of a Marabout. Sent by their parents to the marabout, these boys are expected to receive a religious education, but instead are forced to beg and give what they earn to the marabout. In the process of doing so, they have little to no nutrition, hygiene care, or education. This is where the non-profit organization, Les Gones de Mbour enters.
Les Gones de Mbour is a Senegal based organization focused on sustaining the lives of Talibe boys. Through provisions of food, healthcare, personal hygiene training, clothes, as well as education, this organization is sustaining and growing the lives of these boys. In collaboration with Project Safety Nets, an organization that works with Les Gones de Mbour, the Pan-African Student Association and the French Honors Society introduce the 500 for 500 clothing drive. Through this clothing drive, we hope to contribute to the sustainability of the Talibe boys as well as their future
