The project

Les Cajoutiers is a charity founded in 2008 by a Belgian-Senegalese couple living in Warang, near Dakar. Its goal is to give a future to poor children in the village of Warang and surrounding area by providing them with schooling, a balanced diet and medical and social support. The organisation set up a primary school in 2009, which now welcomes children aged 3 to 11. Les Cajoutiers also looks after deaf children, for whom it has opened three classrooms. The project led by Energy Assistance, the ENGIE Group's in-house NGO in Belgium, aimed to electrify the primary school and the classrooms used by the deaf children. 2.8 KW was installed to provide the main power supply. Energy Assistance also installed a power supply for a well pump located near the school's vegetable garden.

Role of the ENGIE Foundation

The ENGIE Foundation provided support to Energy Assistance in 2016. Volunteers from the NGO were therefore able to give staff at Les Cajoutiers hands-on help with installing the panels. The work took place in late 2016.
