We Believe

We believe in the power of an education to transform a person's life.  We believe in starting young, using early childhood education to establish a strong foundation and desire to learn; and then continuing on by identifying key areas, such as scholarships for young girls and classroom supplies where Students for Senegal will be able to help.  Our aim is simple: increase access and availability of high impact learning tools to under privileged children in Senegal.  Yet we strive to go further.  We believe in a holistic approach.  We believe that in order to succeed in school, a child needs more than just a building to learn in.  They need opportunities for sports and relaxation as well as places to study, places to feel safe.  They need ways to become empowered, to be able to make a difference in their own lives and the lives of others, to experience and learn from other cultures, to develop not just academically, but as a whole person. We believe in creating an environment where children can not only reach their potential, but go beyond that and achieve success greater than anything we could have dreamed of.
