Domestic Help: Nanny/ Housekeeper- Fatime Ndiaye

Fatime Ndiaye has been an essential asset to our household for about nearly 15 months  that she has worked for us in Dakar.  She has proven herself to be the most dependable employees and trustworthy.  Her dependability has been a blessing to not only give our newborn child  who is now a toddler consistency, but also helped with my dependability to report to work daily.

She has worked with American families for over 10 years and comes very highly recommended, not only by me, but her previous employees also.  She can provide letters of recommendation that were previously prepared for her.  You can direct her to do things around your house and she will often take the initiative to complete other tasks, as she sees need attention.  Her childcare skills are impeccable, her ironing skills are excellent, good job cleaning, and she can cook, although this not part of the tasks I asked of her.

Fatime will be available when we depart Dakar around June-July.  You are welcome to contact her now, so that she will not have a long lapse in employment.  She speaks fluent French and Wolof.  I converse with her in French, but she also speaks and understands basic English and has not had problems communicating.  She can be reached at mobile #: +221.70.866.1656 or +221-77-457-7673

She had a security background check conducted last summer and has had the MED Unit basic training session offered by the U.S.Embassy Dakar. She will be available starting June 2018.

 If you have any questions, contact eokoth@gmail.com

Domestic Help: Housekeeper/ Cook/ Nanny- Marie Louise Sagna

Marie Louise has been with our family since August 2013. She has become a member of our family. She takes care of the house independently, from cleaning, ironing, laundry. She is a great cook and helps us to prepare dinner, parties in an impeccable way. The chocolate mousse, moussaka and many other Marie Louise recipes will be missed!
She also had an important role in the care of children, 2 little girls at the time of 4 years and 1 year. She is always very attentive to their needs and very scrupulous.
She is a great worker, never sick, very respectful and punctual. She a strong and kind lady at the same time. I highly recommend it to all families who need not just a nanny but a real support.
For reasons of moving out of Senegal in late June 2018 we will not be able to continue working with Marie Louise but we would like to find a good job for her.

Please contact carladegregorio@hotmail.com for any further information.
