Teachers for Bourofaye Christian School (BCS)

Missionary Kids' education is one of the greatest challenges in placing missionaries worldwide. Bourofaye Christian School is the only boarding school in Senegal which offers the possibility of boarding/educating elementary school children. In the past, this school has enabled several SIM families to work in rural areas reaching out to the Wolof people by educating and caring for their children. The school is run by WEC and is located in a rural area which is 30 km from Thiès and 200 km from Kaffrine.

Administrative support affects all other areas of ministry within the mission. When it is lacking because of home assignments or other absences, other ministries suffer. SIM Senegal is currently praying for sufficient administrative backup to provide continuity during some upcoming home assignments.

Dentist Evangelist

What do you do when you have a toothache? How convenient it is to have a dentist handy! What do you think the villagers in the Kaffrine region do when they have a toothache? Most opt to tough it out. When it gets absolutely too painful to stand, most choose to go to the witchdoctor seeking relief. He may heat a knife blade on hot coals and apply the side of the knife to the patient's wrist to cure their tooth pain! A few will decide to travel over the dirt roads into the town of Kaffrine if they have enough money to buy a ticket at the regional hospital.

French-Speaking Teacher of French and Introduction to Computers

Kaffrine is the region of Senegal with the worst rate of secondary school attendance. Only 6% of the population attends secondary school! And only 3% of the population ever attends university. Our SIM Kaffrine team has already made a difference through the scholarship project. We have seen young people baptised and growing spiritually, passing their exams, and going off to university. This encourages us, and we see a great opportunity to help more students.
