We have experienced much growth over the last several years, which is a reflection of your continued support. This has meant an increase in our programs, our participants, and most importantly, our impact. We are now reaching far more people than we ever have. One thing that makes all of this possible is the excellent staff that we have on the ground in Senegal running these programs on a daily basis.
From building schools and health posts, to running the 19 community gardens, there is plenty of fieldwork to manage each of these programs and make them successful. In order to do this, we turn to those who are best able to help themselves – the Senegalese. We now have 18 full-time staff, along with dozens of contractors and interns, who diligently put in the work – day in and day out – to build a better future for themselves and their country. We are very proud of our staff and the commitment they have shown to strengthen our past successes, as well as sustainably build new ones.

Later this month, Andando’s Development Director – Crystal Kelley – is traveling to Senegal to spend time with our staff in training and development. While there, she will take time with each one of them to get to know their stories, which we will bring you over the next several months. We hope you enjoy reading and getting to know them as much as we have over the past few years.
“Jéréjëf!” – Thank You!
Lewis Kiker, Executive Director
