- #65 – Aidons Les Plus Démunis
- Registered Challengers: LALLA SANKHARE, Yacine Joëlle Seck Mboup, MBAYE BA
- Location: Senegal
- 90-Day Challenge Period: September 1 – November 30, 2021
Aidons les Plus Démunis (Aid to the Most Vulnerable) of Senegal is a youth movement led by women.
Our mission is to intervene in social and climate change.
Our objective for the challenge is to plant 50,000 plants, 15 community gardens, accompanied by training and awareness raising with our groups of women and young people.
But also, to make solar installations at the level of the villages which do not have electricity in order to help them to live better.
By acting effectively, we have succeeded in involving the community to participate in the challenge by working with women’s and youth groups. This has made it possible to increase the harvests of thousands of households but also to make the beach clean in order to avoid the harmful effects of plastic waste.
Fighting climate change means contributing to the well-being of populations but also preserving the future of future generations.
Here are some highlights of what the ALPD team achieved during the 90-day challenge.

- 120 trees in schools at Mbour
