New Baraka - Rehabilitation of a slum / project successfully completed

Phase 1A of the reconstruction project of the former slum of Baraka in the heart of Senegal's capital Dakar was successfully completed in summer 2020. 127 families were able to move into clean flats with running water and electricity. 

The project is already bearing its fruits and one can see the joy of the people on their faces...the residents are extremely happy with their new living situation! And phase 1B for the remaining 100 slum dwellers has started already...

We would like to express our gratitude to the main sponsors, H.E. Macky Sall, President of the Republic of Senegal, Mr Samih Sawiris, CasaOrascom and the YOU Foundation - Education for Children in Need for this outstanding project. HOPE’87 is honoured to participate with educational and income generating activities in such a great project for the well-being of people in need. 

Have a look at the awesome presentation by CasaOrascom on the transformation of the slum of Baraka into the bright “Cité Baraka”...
