About Ashoka Sahel

Ashoka Sahel started its activities in 1992 with the election of Innovators in Senegal, Mali and Côte d'Ivoire. And it was from the regional office in Dakar that it expanded programs in Burkina Faso and Guinea-Bissau in 1994, and then in The Gambia in 1998. The Ashoka Sahel network now has 40 social entrepreneurs dedicate themselves to solving social challenges in both urban and rural areas.

Ashoka's presence in the Sahel is important as it contributes significantly to the resolution of complex political, social and economic problems in this region of the world.
