Project Safety Nets Responds To The Needs Of The Community

When our last missions trip was abruptly interrupted by COVID 19, we had no doubt the our work would be continued. Since leaving Senegal, Project Safety Nets has employed women for the local association to make masks for the community. This weekend, the PSN Youth Advisory Council, the Youth Mayor, the Jappalante Women, and our Regional Director, Mayssa Ndiaye took to the streets of the community of Diorga to distribute hundreds of face masks. Mayor Omar Mane sent his gratitude and blessings.

Thank you to everyone who helped to make this possible for us to continue to serve the community during this critical time. We are still raising funds (less than $1 each)to continue to help these women provide for their families. Your tax deductible gift can help us make this happen. Please send your donation to$ProjectSafetyNets. Drop your email address in the memo to get your receipt.


The Japplante women work as liaisons between the clinics and families, offering health education and conducting wellness check ups from home to home.

We have partnered with the Japplante Women to start the sanitation project in their community. With financial and educational support from PSN they have also established and is maintaining a chicken farm. We will continue to work with them to realize their dream of building a skill center, which will  promote intergenerational learning, health and wellness, economic development to create sustainable living.

Thank you for your interest in supporting Project Safety Nets. We have been supporting the underserved population of Senegal, West Africa for over 13 years. Early on in our work, we came to realize that many people take for granted the ability to obtain the basic necessities in life. 

As we prepare for our next mission trips in February and March 2022, we are looking for people and/or organizations who are willing to collaborate with Project Safety Nets. Many residents of Senegal have been impacted and lives have been saved through Project Safety Nets ( We expect this upcoming year to be just as phenomenal.
