The joy of Saly's family
The very first school for Sally’s village
It was still dark when Sally had to rise, clean her family’s compound and make her way to school. Senegalese nights offer a cool, refreshing breeze from the otherwise blazing heat and, under a clear sky, the stars and moon would provide enough light to walk through the village. “All throughout my life, we never had a school nearby,” says Sally, now a confident teenager. “Growing up, this meant that I – and most other children in my community – had to walk for a very long time just to get to my classes.”
