Originally from the eastern part of Senegal in Tambacounda, Rokhy Ndiaye is passionate about development issues. First, by her training, since she holds a degree in Sociology of Development and a Master’s in Local Development Engineering at Gaston Berger University of Saint Louis, then, by the orientation of her activities. In reality, this passion is far from theoretical, especially since 2015 Rokhy initiated field studies of the most disadvantaged communities in the regions of Saint Louis, Fatick, and Tambacounda. She was a Research Assistant for the Agricultural and Rural Prospective Initiative (IPAR) in 2016 as part of the evaluation of the national program of family safety grants with a perspective of strengthening the resilience capacity of rural households. But it is especially with the project “Fight against irregular migration and support for local development in Tambacounda” of the NGO Voluntary International Development (VIS) 2017 that Miss Ndiaye had the chance to help potential irregular migrants to invest and work in their localities. She was responsible for leading activities and awareness raising among these young people and sharing with them the opportunities presented by the project and its partners. In addition to these experiences, there are service-level internships such as the Regional Development Agency (ARD) of Tambacounda as well as the preparation of planning documents for certain local authorities in the same region.
