Volunteer Cooperation Program (VCP)
This 7-year project (2020-2027) funded by Global Affairs Canada aims to reduce gender inequality and alleviate poverty by addressing gender-based violence, inequalities in access to resources and economic opportunities, and barriers to the exercise of strategic forms of choice, voice and influence that are the result of unequal and discriminatory power relations embedded in society. Seven hundred and seventy (770) Canadian and Southern volunteers will be deployed in our countries of intervention to implement short-, medium- and long-term mandates to support partner organizations in 11 sub-Saharan African countries (Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Eswatini, Ghana, Senegal, Tanzania, Togo, Uganda, Zambia).
DAMCAM, My Voice, My Health Project
This project aims to improve the sexual and reproductive health of adolescents in Kédougou, Senegal, by improving access, quality, and utilization of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services. This project is supported by Carrefour International and ActionAid International Senegal, along with two local partners, APROFES and CONAFE.
