Chain of Hope (Benin)

Chain of Hope Belgium aims at consolidating access and quality of specialised care for children in their native country. The goal is for local teams to acquire autonomy in caring for children suffering from pathologies requiring specialised technical operations.


SENSE Foundation Brussels’s support in 2021/2022 is contributing to a multicentric study on preventive aspects of pathologies requiring corrective orthopaedic surgeries, particularly orthopaedic deformity on children’s lower limbs likely due to vitamin D deficiency rickets causing varus or valgus.


The study may show that rickets can be reduced through the elaboration and implementation of a preventive policy on food security and nutrition in Benin, as an increasing number of children are being treated and knowledge on rickets among specialised practitioners improves.

Fondation Energies pour le Monde FONDEM (Senegal)

Created in 1990, the Fondation Energies pour le Monde (Fondem) is a public interest organisation. Fondem supports and promotes access to clean, reliable, and quality energy from local renewable sources, thereby contributing to global poverty alleviation and environmental protection. Fondem focuses its actions where electrification is most needed: rural areas of sub-Saharan Africa.


In 2021/2022, SENSE Foundation Brussels is contributing to the EGALES "Egalité des Genres et Accès à l'Electricité au Sénégal" project.


Continuous decrease in rainfall in Casamance, Senegal, has led to truck-farming becoming the main activity, as an alternative to traditional rice farming. However, due to the lack of appropriate equipment and the difficulty in managing water resources, the income generated has remained scarce, and the workload, mainly supported by women, arduous. The EGALES project aims for sustainable social and economic development, by harnessing solar energy and optimizing water usage.


EGALES aims to durably improve the working conditions and the income of 600 women thanks to solar pumps and irrigation systems while training them on good farming practices and water management. It also aims to create the conditions for scaling up by testing financial mechanisms enabling women’s contribution to the production of equipment.
