Start your holiday shopping early while helping a small village in Senegal purchase 200 desks for their new secondary school. Marion Taylor is a former Peace Corps Volunteer who served in Senegal. She is passionate about empowering people in Africa and helping give them the tools to create a better future for the next
generation. Over the years, Marion has remained in contact with her village, returning to visit on a couple occasions with her husband and daughter. Now, Marion is raising money to build 200 desks for the village school. Local carpenters will be hired to build the desks!
