Please help street children get training as factory brickmakers!

The West African street-children benefit society “laaf e.V. – Hilfe für Straßenkinder in Westafrika” is dedicated to helping street children in Western Africa by providing them with school education and vocational training.

The first donation-funded school-cum-skilled crafts and trades centre is planned for construction in the Casamance region of southern Senegal. There, children are to receive training as factory brickmakers in a „mason“ course of training. The benefit society is acting under the patronage of German parliament member Dr. Karamba Diaby.
