Our mission is to develop the next generation of leaders in Africa by creating safe community spaces where children grow through educational programs, sports, and family-focused health initiatives. 

There are many ways for individuals, groups, and corporations to get involved with our projects. We are currently looking for volunteer writers! We are willing to work with universities to allow students to receive course credits when appropriate. Contact us for details.

A donation of any size

will work to help our efforts to provide assistance to young children and their families. Learn about our projects and goals, then click the link above to donate!

Les Enfants d'Abord is excited to announce a partnership with the Thiès-based medical clinic, Cabinet Paramedical Kandji, operated by Dr. Mamadou Kandji. This partnership will allow us to provide access to first-aid and preventative services free of charge to the children in our programs who otherwise would be unable to access that level of care.

Dr. Robinson-Morris brings impressive experience and a strong passion to help others and support educational programming to our board.
