Tostan, which means “breakthrough” in the Wolof language, is an international nonprofit organization headquartered in Dakar, Senegal. Tostan has spent over 24 years developing a way to put communities in charge of their own futures through a grassroots, comprehensive education program.
Austin College has supported Tostan for 10 years by:
- an annual dinner in the Spring to raise awareness
- an art auction to raise funds (mostly student art).
What you can do!
- Come to the Tostan Dinner and Art Auction March 1 (registration for the dinner has closed)
- If you’re creative or make art we accept student donations all year round for this event!
- 6-8 p.m.
- The dinner is FREE, but bring some $$ or credit card if you want to buy art!
