President’s letter

Dear members,

We are pleased to welcome you all for the 2017/18 club year.

To our new members, welcome to Senegal and to the Dakar Women’s Group. We are pleased to have you!

Last club year 2016 / 17, our goal was to raise FCFA 30 000 000 and our theme for the year was “30 million for 30 years”. I am pleased to say that our hardworking, dedicated and generous members raised over FCFA 34 000 000 with the help of our generous sponsors. Thank you to our big sponsors from 2016 /17 : Spie Batignolles, The Dutch Embassy, Wari, Brussels Airlines, International School of Dakar, Seigneurie, Societe Bic, Vibe Radio, Hotel Pullman Teranga, La Senegalaise des Automobiles, Focus Immobilier, and of course to our beloved Terrou bi Hotel!

This club year, our theme is “Community”. The DWG is a community of brilliant women who have come together not only to socialise and meet like-minded women, but also to do good in our community and home, Senegal. What better way to do good than by having fun whilst doing it too!

Our focus will be on;

– finding deserving projects within the community and spending money raised from last club year
on these worthwhile project.
– a closer interaction between our members through the coffee mornings, DWG Dinners, clubs and classes and
through the buddy programme
– cultural exchange amongst our diverse membership from 69 countries
– helping our members discover Senegal through the visits, excursions, Afterwork and guest speakers

I hope that you will all join me in making this DWG year the most rewarding and fun, as we mark our 31st year.

With best wishes,

Fatou Jobe.
DWG President 2017 /18
