OUR HISTORY

Let us tell you about our history

The ASB Foundation was founded in New York in 2007 by a small group of individuals who joined forces in order to carry on the efforts of Amette Saloum Boye who has worked tirelessly to help the disadvantaged families of the village of Koutal, Senegal. The village of Koutal was created in 1968 to house people with leprosy and their families. For the past 28 years Amette Saloum Boye, with the support of other caring helpers, has been a pioneer in raising donations of goods, clothing and food for Koutal – a much neglected and extremely remote part of Senegal. These donations of toys, food, clothes, and funds to pay for basic necessities like electricity and water remind these children that they are special and not forgotten.
