Nanny available immediately – Diane Bakouyosso

Diane has worked for our family as a nanny and housekeeper for four years. Previously, she worked for several foreign families including some US Embassy.

Domestic Help: Driver – Khassim

Khassim has been my driver since early 2017.  (I no longer need him now after moving house and changing schools for my children, everything is at walking distance!) Khassim has been flexible in terms of scheduling and very reliable. He is respectful and discrete. My children both made good friends with him thanks to his warm attitude. Khassim, who speaks French, Wolof and Mandingue, has over time become of an administrative assistant to me, too. He helped me obtain all the paperwork I needed to get settled in Senegal, plus helped with car issues (customs, insurance, controle technique, repairs). He also made himself available as needed for weekend trips when I had visitors. I highly recommend Khassim as a driver, he is a true gem.
