I would like to highly recommend Marie Diatta as a nanny and housekeeper. She worked for us a couple of tours ago when we were in Dakar, and is still beloved by my three children. She even went with us to the States for 6 months while my husband and I were in language training, so she has exposure to American culture and understands some English. Since we departed, she has been working for another family (I believe with a UN organization) but would happily work for an embassy family again. She knows many of the facilities workers and knows how to handle all manner of GSO issues at your residence. She is a happy and helpful employee anyone would feel comfortable with in their home. Feel free to contact me for further information (firstname.lastname@example.org), or contact Marie directly at +221774717449, or she can be reached by email at email@example.com.
