MOST FREQUENT QUESTION

Why Senegal?

The idea came out of a feeling for help towards Africa. Being a continent so large we needed to focus on a country. One day Jordi was in a café in the neighborhood of Gracia in Barcelona, it was when he was initiating the project and he met Hamady Diouwara a Senegalese who was playing the piano. They talked for a long time. He turned to be the inspiration he needed.

How can we help?

You can make a donation, share the project in social media and make your family and friends aware of the problem.

Do you think this is the final water solution?

No, but it’s a good temporally solution that opens the opportunity to search during a period of 10 years for a more permanent solution.

What will you do if you don’t get all the money you need?

We will not give up until 551 families have access to safe drinking water. So we will not stop until we get it.

Where where can we see your documentation of Association or local Association (AGIR), witch you are collaborate in Senegal ?

Let us know and we will send it to you with pleasure, thank you.
