In a courageous and desperate attempt to escape biting poverty in West Africa,Nourou who is slightly handicapped, travelled by road to Congo in search of a better life.
However,success proved elusive.After going through unimaginable suffering,pain and disappointment,he was forced to bite the bullet and return to Senegal completely disillusioned.
Now with a wife and 3 kids,he exists on the fringes of Senegalese society barely managing to eke out a meagre existence hawking handcrafted beads on the streets.
Nourou,his wife and 3 children,live in a tiny room with a mat and small mattress.
We gave the family a donation to help them generate much-needed capital to boost Nourou’s small business and empower him economically.
