Senegal has one of the most stable democracies in Africa. Its economy, following structural reforms and liberalization, has grown steadily in recent years. Although the country is credited for having the best infrastructure systems in West Africa, this is only true in the North and Central regions. With an underdeveloped agricultural sector and underdeveloped infrastructure, many challenges to economic growth in the Casamance region in Southern Senegal continue. Since 2013, Shelter For Life has worked on a number projects throughout the Casamance region. Our work has included: constructing and rehabilitating farm-to-market roads and drainage systems, building transitional shelters, improving access to clean water, and developing agricultural farming practices and market linkages.
