First of all I'd like to apologize for the mistake I've made. I wrote in French for an English-written blog. That message was destined to my french blog. Senegal, in West Africa is a frenchspeaking country. A little number of people speak English. Dakar is its capital. Its population is growing and there's less and less jobs available. That's why many young people are trying whatever they can do to immigrate to better areas such as Europe. They even risked their lives to go to Spain by means of traditional boats. Many died on the way. But they don't care. They said they prefer to die than to stay useless. They are ashamed to be supported by their parents instead of helping Them.However the man in the picture is a great example for those younsters. He's associated with a friend. They make home juice and sell it in the streets of Dakar. He told that he earns a decent living with this activity. Furthermore he's a breadwinner. I believe he is a real role model.
