Project Back 2 School (Senegal)

Organized by: Theo Petenzi

In 2008, my mother left the comfort of our New York City apartment for the harsh reality of Senegal, Africa. A year later she was so taken back by the terrible conditions the country's inhabitants face on a daily basis she decided to dedicate her life to helping the children of one of the largest towns in the country--M'Bour--with their education. Today, she runs a school (called Avenir Plus... which translates into The Future Plus) that currently employs 25 full time educators and has an attendance of 530+. Since its inception, dozens of educators from Europe and the Americas have come to pledge their support by staying for months at a time and teaching these children as volunteers. This is obviously not an option everyone can pursue, however, you are able to make a donation of any size to help the future (and current) costs of maintaining and IMPROVING the school! The idea behind this project is that perhaps with education, there is the possibility for a better tomorrow.

No donation is too small and spreading the word is just as meaningful as a physical donation!

Thank you all for your time!
