We are proud to announce the construction of the new Optique Solidaire in Sédhiou, the next step in Santa Yalla’s project.
With this opportunity and with the help of our partners, we will be able to extend the services that Etnia Barcelona Foundation provides to communities in Africa.
Africa is at the heart of the work we do, with a special focus on Senegal. Two years ago, we celebrated the opening of Santa Yalla’s optical store, which provides visual health and access to optometric services to the Ziguinchor community as well as empowers local women by giving them the opportunity to run the store.
Now it’s time to get started on phase two: building a second store in the region of Sédhiou to allow the local population, regardless of their resources, the option of accessing prescription glasses at affordable prices.
This initial phase of construction is just the beginning. We show you the first 3D renderings of the new optical store.
