Conclusion

“There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under the heavens.” Ecclesiastes 3:1

2021 saw a new start for Markas al Nour in N’Djamena with the appointment of a new director in August. Classes and other activities were less in the Bahr el Gazel in 2021 compared to 2020. Water and community-led total sanitation continued in the Ouaddai with the same rhythm as before.

The transformation we would like to see in coming, but has not yet been achieved, so we will continue to work hard in the coming years. In the meantime, we hope that you appreciate reading the report about what we’ve accomplished in 2021.

2020 had plenty of success and challenges. The biggest challenge was the financial crisis which forced the closure of our Markas al Nour education center. Nonetheless, the center reopened its doors in order to keep offering high quality instruction.

We will continue working together on our common objectives in education and development in 2021.

Moussoro Map

Moussoro is a town of about 50,000 people on the edge of the Sahara desert.  Service au Sahel has taught computer classes in Moussoro since 2010 through a partnership with a local association.  While teaching those computer classes, one of Service au Sahel’s teachers found out that there was no accessible map of the city of Moussoro.

So with the help of his computer students, they made this map of Moussoro with the neighborhoods roughly in the right spot.
