CECI-Senegal was established in 1984 and works to strengthen the organizational and institutional capacities of civil society, sustainable economic development in rural areas, food security and gender equality. There have been significant developments in the shea and rice industries, and the environment has been a central theme in our promotion of good practices for improved preservation of soil fertility, proper management of pesticides and fertilizers and preservation of water resources.
CECI-Senegal has coordinated our organization’s collaborative regional work, particularly in the areas of governance and gender equality, with authorities such as the African Union and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).

Humanity has always experienced conflicts related to social, economic and political inequalities leading countries into endless cycles of violence. For this reason, States have always looked and continue to look for solutions to eradicate or reduce the violence that weakens and saps economic growth and social cohesion in many countries. Concerned about the negative impacts of this violence, States come together around programs to take steps to create peace and security in the world and thereby protect women and girls, who are the most vulnerable.
The Centre of International Cooperation and Studies (CECI) has set up an important program to provide funding, support and advice to women to maximize their numbers as local community leaders during the January elections.
