Who’s invited?
All members of our Facebook Group (join here) and their guests.

Our guest of honor is Mme Ndeye Diouf who has volunteered in the prisons for 15 years.

When and where?
The SWAP will be held in Pojnt E from 10am to noon on January 30th. For directions, see our Facebook page.

How does it work?
Donate women’s clothing items that you no longer want and swap them with others.

  • Clothing must  be in good condition, clean and folded.
  • Shoes, jewelry, handbags and other accessories in good condition may be swapped as well.
  • For each item you bring, you will receive one ticket.
  • All items ‘cost’ one ticket.
  • Any items remaining at the end of the day will be donated to detainees at the women’s prison.

Please note that t-shirts and underwear are not allowed in the SWAP, but if they are in good condition, we happily accept them as donations .

Due to the growth of this event, clothing must be dropped off at one of the two locations (Mermoz or Hann Maristes) BEFORE January 28th! Drop-off dates and times will be announced on our Facebook page. If you choose to drop off clothing at a time outside of those specified, you may send your clothing via Sen Express (3000 cfa flat rate). Contact us for the address details and to set this up.

When you arrive at the SWAP, your ticket will be ready and waiting so you can start shopping right away!

Wow. This sounds amazing. The entry fee is probably like 10,000cfa, right?

No, my friend. Special price for you, nice lady. 😉

Entry for the event is 1,500cfa and proceeds will go towards transporting the clothing to the women’s prisons.


High quality clothing. BIG discounts.

Now that I’ve got your attention…

The Braderie is back! It’s a large sale event of high quality clothing at deeply discounted prices that starts today and will run through Tuesday, 10am to 7pm daily. The sale will feature around 1000 articles of clothing, for both men and women, at prices ranging from 10,000 to 100,000 CFA. Great atmosphere made even better by refreshments (tea, coffee, beer, cookies…) and music.

Among the brands available: Patrizia Pepe, Gérard Darel, Façonnable, Malene Birger, Plein Sud, Eleven Paris, and many more.

Directions: Take King Fahd Palace road and turn right at the Hotel Azur (which has recently changed names). Go straight for about 200 meters and look for the villa with a poster on the door.
