Senegal Care Volunteer Donates Bookshelves

 Volunteer donation in Senegal

Projects Abroad volunteer, Virginie Thouvenin, from France, has made an unusual and inventive donation to her care placement in Senegal. Noticing the need for a more organized way of storing the children’s books, she sought out a carpenter in order to install four bookshelves. Virginie paid for this herself as she wanted to donate something which would make a lasting impression at the placement. The staff at Virginie’s placement are very grateful.

If you are keen to make a donation to the children on your project, why not wait till you arrive on your placement and see what they need most? Something as simple as bookshelves makes a real change in the classroom creating a feeling of structure and tidiness, which is important within a working environment.

Projects Abroad’s social manager in Senegal, Erica Frerking, explains the benefits; ‘Now the books will be on display in the classroom for all the children to admire, and it is more organized and accessible for the teachers to use!’
