During this meeting, Dr. Salim M. AlMalik reviewed ISESCO’s new vision, which pays major attention to social and human dimensions and empowerment of various categories to live in decent conditions. The two parties also explored ways to promote cooperation between the Organization and “Servir le Sénégal” Foundation, which provides various services to citizens in need.
The two parties also agreed to organize a medical, educational and social caravan in 2020 in Senegal, equip a number of childcare centers with educational tools, and train social workers in these centers to provide integrated social, educational and psychological services that are sensitive to the needs of these categories.
