Notto Village, Senegal

 Visit the Village of Notto!  We invite you to explore our community through the short films and photos that we have made.

Here in Notto, a group of us worked for almost 3 weeks taking photos, making videos, and doing theater about the different aspects of our community.  We covered things that we are proud of as well as things that we want to change.

We've shown our work to the community leaders and our local politicians in order to help them better understand us.

We hope you will look at our work too and let us know what you think!
