TEAM STRATEGY

WorldVenture's Senegal team is currently involved in church planting among the rural Serere and urban populations, translation of the Bible into Wolof, leadership training through the Evangelical Theological Institute of Senegal, evangelism and discipleship, and provision of leadership and staff at the Dakar Academy, a school for missionary children.

Other projects include a library and study center, and a drop in day center for street beggar boys, both in Dalifort, a poor suburb of Dakar. WorldVenture also owns and operates a camp and retreat center on the coast.
