ABOUT THE SUMMIT
“In the spirit of teraanga: for openness and sharing”
The Wellbeing Summit Dakar – Thiès, hosted by Tostan, will be a transformative gathering that aims to empower individuals, organizations and communities to foster well-being in professional, personal and community settings.
In an increasingly challenging global context, a focus on holistic wellbeing has never been more relevant, especially for those at the center of social change and wellbeing efforts.
In Senegal and across West Africa, when challenges arise, a gathering – referred to as a “pénc” in the local language of Wolof – is called to bring together the whole community for discussion.
Tostan is delighted to be part of this global movement, and to be hosting a Regional Summit in Senegal which will be an African-based, African-led, globally connected convening to explore the intersection of wellbeing as a global goal and wellbeing as a daily practice in our organizations, communities, and personal lives.
