Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

The project has created so far 12 sustainable green jobs and impacts positively the center for disabled people of Ouakam located in a low-income community. The project is monitored and funded by the Dutch Embassy in Dakar. Since its beginning (4 month ago) more than 5000 bags have been created and sold to the people of Dakar and Ouakam. We intend to fully train the participants by the end of the program and insert them as trainers in other locations nationwide.

The business model has been created and tested by a trained business school student and applied to the project.

We are currently conducting discussions with several ministries in Senegal to reinforce the initiative in Ouakam and look at its de-multiplication nationwide.
