TAIK Education Fund

The TAIK Education Fund is dedicated to ensuring that every African kid who is of age to go to school, goes to school and stays enrolled. One program under the Fund's portfolio is a yearly door-to-door campaign called "Campagne Education Pour Tous" (Education For Everyone) to provide school supplies to kids in impoverished neighborhoods and advocate for education, especially for girls. The first campaign was done in October 2021 and has benefitted 1,100 kids from impoverished neighborhoods in Senegal thus far. The campaign is made possible thanks to partnerships with grassroots organizations on the ground.
