Offices des Forages Ruraux (OFOR) Senegal: Engendering Industries Partner Profile


Engendering Utilities supports women’s participation in Senegal’s water sector. The program supports Offices des Forages Ruraux (OFOR) to increase opportunities for women by introducing gender equality initiatives at each phase of the employee lifecycle. A complex web of contributing factors prevents women in Senegal from joining the formal workforce, particularly the male-dominated water sector. This industry represents a potential economic growth area in Senegal, and the exclusion of women from opportunities in this market deepens the country’s gender equality divide.
