Lucie Desfoux left Sourdeval (Manche) to work on the African continent for seven years. She teaches history in Senegal.

His brother, Simon, joined him two years ago to also teach history at the same high school.

Very close to the local population, they are interested in their life.

A few years ago, Lucie had brought back in her luggage a large number of clothes for a nativity scene.

To those excluded from the school circuit

This year, they have decided to help the Senegalese-Italian NGO association Janghi.

This association has been established in Senegal for eight years. Janghi means studying in Wolof, the language of Senegal along with French.

Janghi’s mission is to integrate children who are excluded from it into the secular Senegalese school system, a particularly widespread phenomenon since nearly half of school-age children today do not go to school. These street children are called Talibés.

From Sourdeval to Senegal

On June 18, the NGO organized a football tournament. The reward for the winners was football shirts from the Sourdeval club.

These jerseys had been entrusted by Jean-Marc Galiazzo, then vice-president of the Club omnisport sourdevalais (Cos) foot to make good use of them with the most deprived.

Lucie and Simon Desfoux were happy to offer them to the small team, winners of the tournament.

This action was made possible thanks to the investment of Ms. Codou Mbow, colleague in earth and life sciences at Cours Sainte-Marie de Hann in Dakar, where Lucie and Simon also teach.
