Speaking Their Language
When Molly Melching (pictured right) – Founder of Tostan – arrived in Senegal 43 years ago, she never imagined she would make her life there. In an inspirational article in the Christian Science Monitor, we learn how she learned Wolof, Senegal’s main language, so she could connect with the local population and truly understand their concerns as a way of initiating change. Tostan uses this same approach to alleviate poverty, reduce child marriage and end female genital cutting through its community empowerment program. Since 1991, over three million people have benefited.
