About Bourofaye Christian School, Senegal

Bourofaye Christian School is situated outside Dakar, providing a safe, inspiring, Christian environment for children of missionaries. The school is located in a rural area 30km from Thies and 200km from Kaffrine. With the school just a 30-minute drive from Thies, it offers the possibility of day school for children of missionaries working in the area.


By providing accommodation and a community for the children, WEC enables their parents to fulfil their ministry in more remote areas of West Africa where a western curriculum schooling is not available.

For example, some families are living in rural areas among the Wolof people, perhaps doing literacy or translation work, or they may be working with street children, or helping with development projects.

About Senegal

Senegal in West Africa owes its name to the Senegal River. The name comes from the Wolof 'Sunuu Gaal', which means 'Our Boat'. Senegal covers a land area of almost 197,000 sq kilometres and has an estimated population of about 15 million. Its economic and political capital is Dakar. The climate is Sahelian, but there is a rainy season.

The vision of WEC in Senegal is to see every people and language group of Senegal knowing, loving and worshipping Jesus.

We believe we will see this happen as we commit to workers sharing the good news of Jesus creatively, sensitively and abundantly amongst the people in urban centres and rural areas, reaching both adults and children.

We want to see groups of disciples emerging and communities of disciples belonging to Jesus formed who understand and obey the great commission.

As well as church planting, another essential ministry in Senegal is BCS, Bourofaye Christian School, for missionaries' children. The school serves Christian workers in many West African countries and provides quality schooling for children aged 8-16.
