OUR MISSION

To enlist, develop, and mobilize as many of our nation's future leaders to collectively work towards ending educational inequity in Senegal.

OUR VISION

We envision an educational system that is rooted in Senegalese cultures and customs. A system that empowers students to challenge social norms, to strive for academic excellence, and to think critically about the world around them. We are focused on reimagining the role of high-quality Senegalese teacher so that one day all children in Senegal will have the opportunity to attain an excellent education.

OUR CORE BELIEFS

  1. Integrity: We consider integrity a virtue. We commit to uphold the highest standards of ethical expectations in our actions.

  2. Sense of Possibility: We believe the issue of quality education is an urgent one. We take each and every action with the full realization that our work now means that children in underprivileged communities could have significantly better life opportunities than what is possible today.

  3. Locally Rooted & Globally Informed: We believe in the possibility of transformational change in Senegal. We have faith that each child can excel, grow and become what s/he wants. Each individual has the capacity to transform oneself and others.

  4. Continuous Learning: We commit to learn from each other, our partners, and our stakeholders. Through constant learning, we strive to create excellence in outcomes.

  5. Leadership:We stand up when others give up. We dream and take actions to achieve our dreams. We lead and inspire others to follow. We make the impossible happen.

OUR Student Vision

When our students are 25 years old, their education will enable them to be proactive, entrepreneurial, critical-thinkers who are inspired and determined to create new opportunities for themselves and their communities. They will be proud of and value where they come from, equipped to be active citizens in Senegal with a deep knowledge of the historical, social, and economic catalysts for change both locally and globally. Most importantly, their choices and actions will be driven by fundamental values of authenticity, integrity and humanity.
