Our Mission Statement
Kids of Kadiogne is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the health and education of children and families in Sub-Saharan Africa.
A Few Words
Senegal is the westernmost country on the African continent. It enjoys political stability and an excellent relationship with the United States. Senegal is culturally rich, but economically it is among the poorest countries in the world with more than two thirds of its population each living on about $3 per day.
Kids of Kadiogne is named in honor of the children of Kadiogne, the small village where it all started. As we have expanded into other regions, whether to Kawe or to Kaolack or to the many places that begin with other letters, we have informally adopted the more inclusive name ‘Kids of K‘.
We rely on a large network of trusted partners and volunteers. Below are just a few of our key team members.
