Development through health and education

The cornerstone of TSF’s interventions in Senegal is development through health and education projects.

TSF also sends volunteer in the field to support our partners. Our health projects are established in particular with the National Association of Catholic Health Posts of Senegal (ANPSCS). The latter brings together 76 health facilities, a nursery and a midwifery school in Dakar. The ANPSCS aims to work for health and social development integrating care in a preventive, curative and social perspective with a view to the overall restoration of the person’s health from a physical, social and economic point of view as defined by WHO.
