The construction of the Centre for the Mother and Child is supported by The Gift of the Givers Foundation, a South African NGO.

There are two phases to this project:  Phase I was the acquisition of land and Phase II is construction.  (Check out the Project Timeline.) We’re now raising funds to complete the building.

Gift of the Givers has been involved in Mauritania since 2011 and has a dedicated South African staff member based in the country who oversees projects.  They run annual feeding projects during Ramadaan and at Eid al-Adha, have installed two solar-powered water wells, and have donated solar panels and teaching aids to educational institutes.
