Thanks to the work of Oro Valley banker El Ndoye, residents in
Tucson’s northwest region are becoming more aware of the more than
100,000 children struggling to survive in his homeland of Senegal
Tucson resident, El Ndoye and family members from Africa and
America prepare to hand out all the donations they collected last
year. This year, Ndoye is aiming higher, working to raise funds to
build a home and school for the orphan children begging on the
streets in Africa.
The number of child beggars in Africa continues to grow, causing
Tucson resident El Ndoye to worry about the state of his home
country. Above, the children are shown in one of the buildings
where they sleep together at night. Oftentimes there are not enough
blankets to go around.
Many of the children sport their new clothes that were donated
by residents of Tucson, Oro Valley and Marana. Oro Valley banker,
El Ndoye worries about the suffering children in his homeland of
Senegal. Ndoye was able to provide clothing for about 300 homeless
children in a monthlong trip this summer.
