One positive adult can change a child’s life forever. In conflict areas, mentors can instill a passion for creating peace, and finding ways to transcend differences in language, culture, and religion to learn compassion. However, many children lack a mentor or someone to guide them.
El Hadj, Play for Peace mentor, runs our club in the Thiaroye Social Promotion and Reintegration Center. Through educational and social activities that help young people leverage their potential, “Saturdays Are For Children” is an educational project run together with the Citizen Association of Streets Senegal that allows children to gain new knowledge, autonomy, responsibility, and solidarity with the compassion.
