Teranga, literally meaning, “to help a guest come ashore,” or in American terms, “pay it forward,” is the Wolof word for hospitality. Teranga is often known as the identity of Senegal, a country on the Western most shores of Africa.
Teranga Club will explore issues facing Africa today, help support a Senegalese school for at-risk youth and create relationships through fostering pen pals with a Senegalese secondary school.
Eventually, through the proven success of Teranga Club, members will be able to make the trip to Senegal to meet their sister school cohorts (possibly as soon as spring break of the 2017/2018 school year).
Meetings will be held on Wednesdays during Silver Block at NEST in Ms Huls room, B259.
There is a possibility of after school meetings to help manage fundraising and facilitate communication with our sister school (in deference to the time difference between the US and Senegal).
