Connecting people and planet in and around Niokolo-Koba National Park in Senegal
What We Do
We work with local communities to understand issues through their eyes. We then co-develop projects which are led by local people to achieve healthy villages and a healthy environment.
Despite being one of the most politically stable countries in West Africa, the UN classifies Senegal in the low human development category with over 50% of the population classified as suffering from deprivation in health, education and standard of living. Niokolo-Koba National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage site in the southeast of the country. This remote area harbours extraordinary levels of biodiversity existing alongside rural communities of remarkable cultural diversity.
Who We Are
Niokolo Network is a small Welsh charity that works in partnership with a Senegalese Community Based Organisation called Kamben, and their sister NGO Kamben Film Group.
