Welcome to the SIL Senegal website.

Learning to Read

SIL has been working in Senegal since 1984 as an NGO under an agreement with the Senegalese government. We specialise in linguistic research, training, translation and literacy.

On our site you'll find information on the languages of Senegal with which we're working and resources to download. Click here for more information on the services we offer.

SIL Senegal is working in over half of the country's languages.
