Last night I witnessed 244 Gambian youths (ages 14-28) returning from Libya back to Ferefenni, The Gambia en route from Dakar via bus. The Red Cross/The Gambia were directly supporting the recently returned locals. After returning to Ferefenni, all 244 were stationed in the town’s radio station compound, of which was heavily guarded by armed […]

Insights on Casamance   1 comment

I just got done conversing with a high-ranking Senegalese working for a respected agency here in Casamance about the region’s conflict as well as how to approach peacebuilding here. A few tidbits from our conversation*. There is legitimatized fear that the turmoil and instability in Mali may carry over into Casamance. (And if this turns […]

Roads mean access to hospitals, markets (to buy and sell goods), schools, etc. If the roads are horrid, like many in Africa, access to these important resources are […]

So, I hope this post can address the question and any concerns. In Senegal, the official language is French. However, Senegal also […]

Senegal – Part 1   Leave a comment

To Whom That Will Read This, I told a few people that I would be keeping current on my blog to update the rest of the world of my status in Senegal. Forgive me as I left Boston on May 26th and got into Dakar, Senegal on May 27th – thus I am past due […]

Does Guinea-Bissau’s President’s Death have Consequences in Casamance?   Leave a comment

As many of you read from various sources, Guinea-Bissau’s President Malam Bacai Sanha died on January 9th in Paris. As of late, Bissau has been recognized as as a cocaine and marijuana hub as well as one of many unstable countries in the West African region. What happens now is unclear for Bissau with regard […]
