Senegal: lessons from the Mourides

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Senegal, Development, Economics & Business, Migration & Immigration

“All these factors have helped make the Mourides one of the more successful African communities, at home and abroad. Wherever they are, they club together to acquire a mosque and community centre. Their networks help migrants leave Senegal, find work and procure documents. Far from being helpless victims of fate, many Mourides are shrewd operators in a complex, cross-border network,” writes Africa Unchained about the resourcefulness [1] of the Mourides [2].
