Founded in 2016 by a group of Senegalese natives living in the US, Jamarek (www.jamarek.org) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to give back to communities in need, through the health, education and youth empowerment sectors, while promoting social change and intercultural exchange. Thanks to our partnership with the Wisconsin Medical Project, we deliver every year a container full of medical supplies and school equipment to over a dozen locations in rural Senegal.
We are planning to ship our next container in the fall and need your help achieving this goal. No donation is too small and every dollar helps make a difference in the lives of those who need it the most.
Our Vision “The roof fights the rain, but those who are sheltered ignore it.” This old Wolof proverb spewed a new dynamism in our hearts and minds to make a difference in this world. For those of us who have been lucky to be sheltered and privileged to have someone fight that rain for us, it proves necessary to be a roof for the vulnerable ones. It is in that spirit that we founded this not-for-profit organization.
