Project to support the improvement of adolescent health and the fight against gender-based violence in Senegal.


This project to support the improvement of adolescent health and the fight against gender-based violence is implemented by ALPHADEV in partnership with the International Development Research Center (IDRC). TAWFEEX aims at the development of 200 adolescents and young people, 60% of whom are girls, in the villages of the municipality of Gniby, department of Kaffrine, and those of the department of Keur Massar in Dakar in the municipalities of North Yeumbeul, South Yeumbeul, Malika and Keur Massar, through the strengthening of community mechanisms for access to health information and the prevention and management of all forms of gender-based violence.

It is to offer adolescents through the information and advice stores (BIC) in Gniby and the Ёttu Gune yi in Keur Massar access to a quality information and education service on health and the fight against gender-based violence.

Objectives of the project


To provide 200 adolescents, 60% of whom are girls, in Senegal with access to quality health services and protection from gender-based violence by 2024. This includes qualified health personnel, health products available in quantity and quality, and health facilities accessible to girls.


Strengthen the action capacities of 10 BICs (Information and Counseling Boutique) and 10 Ёttu Gune yi of the targeted communes on adolescent health and mechanisms to combat gender-based violence by 2024.


Systematize the lessons learned from the TAWFEEX project for broad sharing and scaling of the project at the national level.

Today, we have a good database on the direct target of the project, which is an essential element in achieving the results. The same scheme will be conducted each year in order to obtain at the end of the four years the 200 young people targeted by the project.
