2 – Mission

The main mission of the John Paul II Foundation is to promote the training of men and women at the service of their country and their fellow citizen, without social, philosophic or religious discrimination. These field stakeholders are dedicated to offer a real development for mankind, to fight against the desertification and its causes, to rescue the drought’s victims in the nine countries of Sahel: the Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, Gambia, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Senegal and Chad.

For more than a quarter of century (25 years) the John Paul II Foundation continues its mission without respite. These local animators are involved in technical development, health, social, agricultural and ecologic areas to ensure the local population a real improvement of their living condition and future prospects.

The originality of the Foundation expresses its will to empower and make the populations of Sahel self-sufficient, to take in consideration all the dimensions of mankind: its heart, its spirit, its body and finally, to give to everyone the means to become the architect of their destiny.

The John Paul II Foundation for the Sahel is a vector of love, solidarity, justice, an instrument against ignorance, a tool of peace and hope.
