Senegal

Tous pour Un

"Tous pour un" is an association providing help and support to Senegalese LGBTQIA+ communities.

It was born following a survey conducted on the situation of LGBTQIA+ in Senegal between December 2014 and September 2015. This survey was made possible by the internet and social networks. It made it possible to make several observations:

  • 83% of the LGBTQIA+ people contacted are between 17 and 31 years old;
  • of these 83% are young people, 19% are pupils, 28% are students and 53% are apprentice tailors and unemployed;
  • most of them live with their parents while others, in order to live their sexual orientation, prefer to rent a place in another neighbourhood. Some then prostitute themselves in order to pay their rent, which puts their health at risk;
  • for fear of being discovered, most LGBTQIA+ people have clandestine sex without protection.
  •  

Missions
