Building Change for these Senegalese Students

In one week Team Dayā heads to Nguiddine Keur Sara in the Fatick region of Senegal to work on our first school build since before the global pandemic.

None of this work is possible without you–and the myriad of our supporters from across the technology, advertising and media sectors.

Meet the Students of Nguiddine Keur Sara

Your donations will be building a school used by first graders (35 students), second graders (35 students) and third graders (34 students).

The current school, started in October 2019, is built from sticks and straw.  It has two temporary classrooms used by three local communities.

We welcome your donations for our Sengal school build. You can donate to Team Dayā overall or to any of the three members traveling to Senegal:

  • Donate to Michael “The Bricklayer” Benedek. Michael is the president and CEO of leading independent data marketplace Datonics, with over 25 years in the Internet, financial services and healthcare fields based in New York and in Tel Aviv.
  • Donate to Jay “The Instigator” Sears. Jay is the founder of Team Dayā and a longtime ad tech executive. He has worked at Mastercard, Rubicon Project, Pulsepoint, ContextWeb, EDGAR Online and Wolff New Media.

We will be telling each of you more about the Senegal school build in future updates.
