What motivates us is to build the inner strength of every human being and to allow every tree to grow its roots.
The Aduna’m Centre offers cultural and sportive activities as well as sustainable agriculture. It was created by the DIALLO family who have been investing into the attractiveness of their homeland for the last 40 years.
Issa Diallo and his brothers and sisters established the Aduna’m Centre to continue the pioneering work their parents had begun.
The Aduna’m Centre is based in a remote area of Senegal, yet via its activities, it allows to build economic, cultural and social bridges with the rest of the world. Furthermore, it helps develop the local culture.
