Hope meets Art

Every year, hundreds of boys live on the streets of Dakar, Senegal. Victim of maltreatment, abuse or poverty, they are forced to sleep rough and to rely on begging in order to eat.
At the same time, many girls, while remaining at home, are denied a basic education.
The Hope meets Art project works with the local Marist communities of priests and religious sisters to run two centres to teach these children the social and employment skills necessary to re-integrate into society. In the past year, some 200 children, regardless of their religion, have been helped.

---
Dans les rues de Dakar, Sénégal, des centaines d’enfants sont livrés à eux-mêmes. Ayant fui la violence et la souffrance d’un contexte familial ou religieux, certains survivent en mendiant par exemple.
Les communautés Maristes locales soutiennent deux centres pour jeunes et leurs proposent des programmes pour aider ces enfants à retourner à l’école, apprendre un métier via une formation professionnelle, ou développer la promotion de la femme. Des programmes de réinsertion sociale sont également proposés aux enfants en rupture familiale. En 2016, le centre a pu aider 174 enfants.

We work with local Marist Communities, and offer these children the help needed to get them out of the troubles they’re in.
Your donations will provide an education to children in need of a future.

Nous sommes en lien direct avec ces communautés, qui offrent aux enfants de Dakar les ressources nécessaires et les aides pratiques pour sortir de la misère.
Vos dons permettront aux jeunes enfants des centres de croire en un futur.
