Why is the nonprofit called Sunu Foundation?
My friends in America have asked me why the nonprofit I created to help children in Senegal is called the Sunu Foundation. By way of some background, I am Serene and Senegalese. I speak Wolof from growing up in Dakar. Wolof can refer to the Wolof people and can also refer to their native language. According to Wikipedia “Wolof is the most widely spoken language in Senegal, spoken [not only] natively by the Wolof people (40% of the population) but also by most other Senegalese as a second language.”
Sunu is a Wolof word meaning “Our”. I believe it represents the collective and togetherness of all people working together to do something good. Since I want everyone to be part of the nonprofit, that is why I named the nonprofit the Sunu Foundation.
