MY HERO honors Global Educator Cheikh Darou Seck, a principal from Dakar, Senegal. Since we met at an iEARN conference in Slovakia in 2004, Cheikh and his students have contributed stories, art and films to MY HERO and we are forever grateful to him for his leadership.
Cheikh has recently been promoted to Principal of a middle school in Dakar, Senegal and his new school needs help. He wants to continue to enhance and improve his students' access to technology and to the world.
The Elhadji Ibrahima Thiaw school, once one of the best schools in Dakar, Senegal, is in need of repair and equipment so students can become global citizens.
