Action against the consequences of COVID-19 in Senegal

Our founder Ute Ohoven was able to try on the first t-Shirt for the Senegal Team

Together with the  Deutschen Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit #GIZ #Senegal we start a project  to fight the Covd-19 consequences  concerning health and society in Senegal.

It benefits the poorest families, who are seriously affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and consequences, to help them with food security and to support a return into a professional activity. The YOU Foundation carries out educational measures, video messages, prevention work or direct support of affected people by making available also mobile health teams. Different individual measures are taken in rural areas e.g. distribution of seed and plants, to support self-sufficiency. Fast and unbureaucratic actions in the interest of those affected are required urgently.

Water is a basic human right!


Clean water is the basis of life for all people
In Europe we like to forget: water is essential for survival. Each of us uses an average of more than 100 liters per day. However, around 800 million people worldwide have no access to clean water.
The people in the villages in rural Africa suffer particularly from inadequate water supplies or insufficient access to clean water. The lack of clean water is often the main cause of suffering and misery; without water, sustainable development cannot take place.

We are happy with the people from Baraka

A lot has changed in Baraka, with the pilotproject “From a slum to a modern city” in Dakar! The new houses and streets are full of life. After the residents moved into their new apartments, the success of the project is reflected in the great satisfaction and happiness of the people who have started into a new, better future.
