The aim of the association is to set up small-scale projects in Senegal in the fields of education, health care, horticulture and general welfare, always with full respect for the own orientation and socio-cultural backgrounds of the local communities and in function of the priorities which the latter present. The association may engage in all activities that contribute to the achievement of these objectives, including ancillary gainful activities within the limits of what is permitted by law and the proceeds of which will be fully allocated to the achievement of the unprofitable objectives.
OPERATION REPORT 2020
Income rose to €40,685. In the first place, account should be taken of the affiliation with the V.Z.W. of the members of the A.S.B.L. Sénégalité, who collected €9855 for the godmother/godparent programme. Not only was 2020 a disaster year due to the Coovid virus, but the Warmest Week also disappeared as a source of income. This new approach was a real loss for most associations with “Charity Causes”. Fortunately, our departments did better than last year (11000 € against 10000 €) and various promotions (canacla – CD – End-of-year gift) raised an additional €2310. We received subsidies (€13674) from: Lions Club Kasteel van Gaasbeek, Zuidwerking Rumst, Christelijke Mutualiteit Limburg, Warmste Week 2019, King Baudouin Foundation- 4de Pillar, PIDRA

ACTIONS ANTI-CORONA PANDEMIC
POLICY PLAN 2020
Our projects remain small-scale and limited in space. The latter means that we adhere to the cooperation with the school of Saly Carrefour and the village communities of N’Dioufene., Bekaye Ardo and Ndjamadji. Once certain objectives have been achieved (for example, building up of Saly Carrefour), we can respond to existing questions, assuming them from other communities.
The functioning of the non-profit organization is based on the needs as applied by the local partners, so the school principals and the village superiors. For 2020 we were asked to make a priority out of the further construction of direct water pipes and the installation of the necessary sanitary facilities, both for the Saly Carrefour school and for the Louga villages. Naturally, first and foremost, care will be taken to realize the annually recurring questions. The following amounts were planned in this regard:
SCHOOLMATERIAL FOR SALY CARREFOUR 1.500 €
SCHOOLMATERIAL LOUGA VILLAGES 1.000 €
MEDICINE LOUGA VILLAGES 2.000 €
SEEDING LOUGA VILLAGES 1.000 €
TOTAL BUDGET 5.500 €
Water connections in the interior are a rather complex problem, primarily in view of the “complicated” contacts with the government and the company responsible for the installation of pipes and the like (Suez is now replacing SDE). In N’Dioufene, it is absolutely necessary to draw pipes to the medical aid post and to the school, and to Ndjamadji this applies to the school and to the vegetable garden.Bekaye Ardo has no water point in the village.
PLANNED TOTAL BUDGET 10.000 €
In the Saly Carrefour school, the sanitary consists of 2 “toilets”. There is a sanitary block with 6 separate toilets and a sink. The case de santé of N’Dioufene has no toilet, worthy of the name and the same applies to the various schools
SANITARY SALY CARREFOUR 7.000 €
SANITARY CASE DE SANTÉ 1.000 €
SANITARY SCHOOLS LOUGA VILLAGES 3.000 €
TOTAL BUDGET 11.000 €
The operating costs in Senegal (coordinator and visits) were planned on:
PLANNED BUDGET 4.500€
The V.Z.W. retains its support to the local family in Saly (with partial span, settlement of the € 500 loan in 2019)
PLANNED BUDGET 1.000€
In consultation with the three village rulers, it was decided to investigate to what extent something could be done to combat soil segregation and desertification and to work towards a system of greening, natural regeneration, as is used for example in Niger. A study budget was provided for this.
STUDY REGENERATION 500 €
TOTAL AMOUNT FOR THE SCHEDULED WORK : 32.500 €.
All our expenses are based on price quotes, submitted invoices or expense reports. The amount to be paid for the family in Saly is determined by the board of the V.Z.W.
The main pillars for the acquisition of income remain: individual deposits, activities of the various departments and subsidies. Planned activities and discussions with service clubs and institutions already give us a first picture of the expected income.
INDIVIDUAL DEPOSITS 7.000 €
DEPARTMENTS 10.000 €
SUBSIDY ETC. 10.000 €
BALANCE 2019 6.050 €
TOTAL OF INCOMING FUNDS: 33.050 €
