SOS SAHEL International

Léopold Sédar Senghor, then President of Senegal, imagined a federation of organizations struggling against desertification alongside the people. He supported the creation of SOS SAHEL International, the first project of which was installing thousands of wells equipped with pumps throughout the Sahel. Soon other associations began in Sahelian countries like Mauritania and Sudan, but also in France, Great Britain and Luxemburg. A quarter of a century after its creation, SOS SAHEL pursues its same objectives on the ground – access to water and health care, environmental protection and food crisis prevention.
