QUEEN SHEBA VILLAGE (QSV) is a nonprofit organization that focuses on women and girls education, social welfare and more. It does not exclude families and males. In fact the organization has held several programs and events over the years pre nonprofit and after our ruling year of 2013 catering to families benefiting everyone whom participated. QSV welcomes collaborations with like-minded Associations and NGO’s in the future whom in particular work on behalf of orphans and Talibe children.
In 2004, Queen Sheba D. Cisse, the founder of QSV Organization first visited the country after being invited by the brilliant late scholar Iman Shaykh Assane Cisse ( RTA) of Medina Kaolack.
“I remember how excited I was once the plane touched down on Senegalese soil in Dakar. I happily claimed my luggage and was eager to meet a family member of the Scholar Imam to pick me up as I was stepping off the curve of the sidewalk I was greeted by children with bowls begging. It was my first reality experience on this sensitive issue. My heart dropped to be confronted like this. My happiness diminished suddenly and my spirit was emotionally clouded. I had researched and read back at that time there were nearly 55,000 children on the street in the same conditions of having to depend on the public to feed or care for them. Since that time I have come across several groups struggling to maintain refuge for male children in the same condition throughout Senegal. We ask God that our missionary work is contagious enough that collectively organizations of all kinds and communities in Senegal prioritize meetings to discuss solutions to bring about CHANGE. We no longer can sit back waiting for the leaders of African countries to pass laws that are there but not practiced.” ~ Founder Queen Sheba Cisse
Partnering with QUEEN SHEBA VILLAGE with a concrete plan and goals of your development will attract our team to take the conversation to the next level to secure future collaborations. Currently QSV is on a unique development mission fundraising to build a women and girls educational empowerment Social Center to be able to include and address such important concerns. Queen Cisse was born in North America, USA where children are protected by laws preventing this horrific epidemic. As an African that has returned to her home and native country Senegal, Queen Cisse believes it is high time to “Take a stand and take Action!”

International volunteer Merilyn interview with Ndeye Khardiata
Ndeye is a mother of many, and highly business minded woman. She has been running her business from a very tender age (before marriage) and does not remember her exact age. She says entrepreneurship runs in her blood. She has a passion for action. Ndeye orders clothes in to sell and has a tailoring business where she has hired tailors working. She also has a wide variety of shoes and hand bags that she orders in to sell.
Ndeye believes in empowering other women by inspiring them with her life. She says that other women should feel like they can also run a business through her example. She also wants to be better than other tailors on the market by providing quality work. She says her customers are always happy with their products and this is a plus for her.
In five years’ time, Ndeye sees her business running not from her home or spare bedroom, but in a shop. She also envisions traveling to order in products from other countries like Dubai. She has big dreams and believes a loan from QSV will help her achieve this. Additionally, she envisions her business running in a shop so that she can be able to employ more youths that are unemployed and looking for a means to make a living. Ndeye is a tailor and has trained all her tailors, and wants to train even more young motivated youths.
Ndeye also believes she will be able to pay back the loan little by little because her business provides a steady revenue.
Mariama Ba, fully recommends Ndeye as a candidate that can be well trusted for this loan. Mariama has been Ndeye’s faithful client for many years now, and fully vouches for her. Below are several more pictures of Ndeye’s business.
