Students for Senegal is a student led organization. Running an international non profit is a complex, time consuming but highly rewarding job. Our members, nearly all high school students, take the lead in everything from fundraising and event organizing to long term planning and ideas for new and innovative ways to work with the people of Lambaye. This experience gives them valuable knowledge for whatever they choose to pursue later in life. The students are supported by a board of directors comprised of MHS alumni, administrators, teachers, and community leaders. Additionally, we also have an extremely dedicated team of village leaders, architects, principals, teachers, parents and students in Lambaye working with us to ensure that our plans are executed the in most efficient and beneficial way possible.
We believe that student leadership is what sets our organization apart from so many others. The students bring unique new ideas, a passion for helping others, relentless optimism and are able to connect on a deeper more personal level with their peers in Senegal.
Over the past 9 years, through bake sales, soccer tournaments and other fundraisers, we have raised more than $350,000, as a result we have:
- Doubled the passing rate in Lambaye's schools
- Funded the pre-school education of 35 of Lambaye's poorest children
- Sent more than 5,000 books and thousands of school supplies, toys and sports equipment to Lambaye
- Secured a location for, worked with BKSK Architects to design, and completed all preliminary work to build the Lambaye Learning Center.
Most importantly we have inspired countless students in Lambaye to study and work hard in school and have given them hope of a brighter future.
