Interesting Facts : Dakar is situated on a peninsula and is the farthest Western point on the main continent of Africa. It use to be a French colony and has a very strong French influence except out in the smaller villages. There are two seasons, one dry and one rainy, and the temperatures can range from the high 90s to low 60s depending on the season.
All of the power outlets in the city are 220v so all American 110v electronics need a power transformer or they will blow out. All houses are made of cement block so fires are not a big concern.
Senegal is primarily an Islamic country, but the capital city of Dakar has a noticeable Catholic influence.
Building and Grounds
The 6-acre campus of Dakar Academy abundantly meets the needs of our parents, boarding homes, staff and students. We are committed to meet the changing needs of the mission community through continued renovations and new construction projects.
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8
