Following a vast literacy program in the communes of Yeumbeul North, Yeumbeul South, Malika Keur Massar, and in the rural community of Sanglekam. 3000 women supervised by 77 groups decided to federate their efforts to fight poverty and promote solidarity and service to the community by creating a federation called "Jàng Ngir Suqaliku".

The federation was officially established on October 8, 2007 by the representative of the former Minister of Literacy, Ms. Diatta

This program has been introduced in the Niayes area with the support of the PAPF since :

  • In 1997, 15 women's groups were formed and constituted as an E.I.G. called Jooko-Jookkodiral
  • In 2000 it is the E.I.G "Bamtare Jiggéen" ni which has set up composed of 30 groups.
  • In 2003 the E.I.G "Dental Jiggeén ni" composed of 20 groups
  • And by the end of 2005, 15 literacy circles

For the sustainability of these groups, the program has provided financial support to the learners to develop income-generating activities to support instrumental and technical learning.
