Sustainable Development Goals from within and across all 11 countries of the Sahel
SOS SAHEL is the only organization focused on development within and across all 11 countries of the Sahel — Senegal, Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, Cameroon, Chad, Sudan, South Sudan, Ethiopia and Djibouti.
Through our network of more than 1,000 local actors, we move the region closer to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and African Union Agenda 2063 by focusing on the food security, livelihoods and climate challenges. Simultaneously, we create bridges between local actors and international markets — promoting regional products around the world to drive greater economic growth and security.
