Peace Corps Response Volunteer Helps Open a New Clinic in Kaolack

Aside from the work of our incredible volunteers, Peace Corps Senegal also boasts some outstanding Response Volunteers.  These experienced individuals join Peace Corps for shorter stints, usually six months to a year, and focus on one or two specific projects.

One such project is the Institut Mére-Enfante de Kaolack, which recently opened with the help of Response Volunteer Dr. Melissa.  She came to Senegal in November 2014 to collaborate on a community health development project with an NGO called IMEC.  Six months later, L'Institut Mére-Enfante is the result, providing affordable, high-quality, and accessible medical services to the Kaolack area.  Thank you, Dr. Melissa, for all your hard work!
