I would like to recommend Fanta Diatta for the positions of housekeeper or nanny. We are a family of four, with two children ages 5 and 7. Fanta has been working for us for almost two years. We will miss her when we leave Dakar. Fanta is very reliable and trustworthy young woman. She is a hard worker, learns quickly and is open to constructive criticism. In addition to her housekeeping duties, Fanta voluntarily took on childcare responsibilities such as bathing the children, school pickups and drop offs as needed, and helping my youngest child to eat her food during mealtimes. Fanta will be available after June 15th.
