Washington, DC, August 23, 2011- Agribusiness is a broad concept that covers input suppliers, agro-processors, traders, exporters and retailers, and is now considered one of the avenues for Africa’s economic growth. Agriculture contributes 15 per cent of GDP, almost two thirds of total employment (64.7 per cent), and accounts for more than 75 per cent of domestic trade by value providing a livelihood for the majority of the economically active population.

SENETRUST

The development of SENETRUST, short for Senegalses Education Trust, is coming along smoothly, thanks to the help of Quintin Dipina, our francophone consultant, and Akim Laacher, a new intern. This program, which is in partnership with the Foundation of the University of Cheikh Anta Diop (FUCAD), is designed to raise funds for Cheikh Anta Diop University. Based in Senegal, the university lacks the economic stability to be able to provide the necessary resources and tools to its students. SENETRUST is designed to raise funds to help the school meet these needs. Focusing primarily on American foundations and private donors associated with the University, the program aims to raise awareness of the struggles faced by the university and to evoke change. The formal launch of SENETRUST is scheduled for October 27.  Check out this program at www.senetrust.org and like their Facebook page!
