About Senegal


In the past decade, Senegal has progressed significantly both economically and politically as a moderate, democratic, predominantly Muslim secular country in fragile west Africa. However, poor infrastructure, longstanding underinvestment and an inhibiting policy environment continue to challenge growth. In partnership with the Government of Senegal, USAID helps improve lives by creating jobs, improving access to education and health care, helping to strengthen democratic institutions, and developing the agriculture sector to increase production and incomes.
