Women at the heart of the Senegalese community in UK
Association des Senegalais (es) du Royaume-Uni (ASRU)
Who We Are
L'association des Sénégalais(es) du Royaume-Uni (ASRU)
The Association des Senegalais (es) du Royaume-Uni (ASRU) was founded on March 29, 2009, following the tragic death of the late Cheikh Sadibou Thioye in 2007 and the outpouring of solidarity from Senegalese that followed, a group of women saw fit to create a structure to help Senegalese in the United Kingdom. In 2014, it registered as company limited by guarantee and opened its membership to all Senegalese living in the UK.
