The mission of Hope Meets Art, founded in 2011, was raised to support the project in Dakar.This project invests in social and family reintegration for street children and girls to receive education.
This hope was born of a mixture of colorful African fabrics, dyed by young girls from the Marist center in Dakar. Their creativity and the brilliance of African colors brought to fruition two fashion collections for children.
Hope Meets Art will implement art workshops given by professional and passionate volunteers; These will be held throughout the year. While discovering their own talents, the children will need to be educated.
Center for Street Boys
The Center of Nazareth was opened by Marist Fathers, Marist Sisters and Missionary Sisters of the Society of Mary in 2005.
The main center is to provide the opportunity for children to be reunited with their families.
Regular street actions and Wednesday-Nazareth offer the appropriate food, health care, clothing, access to bathing facilities and other manual and technical activities.
The Center hosts between 30 to 80 boys aged 5 to 18 years and provides them with preventive awareness and advice. Special attention to each individual is needed to meet them with their families.
A dedicated team of 9 people work to make this project possible .
Center for the Promotion of Women
