  Senegal 
Description
Predominately Muslim and home to many peoples, Senegal—especially its capital, Dakar—is one of the largest industrial centers in West Africa. Prominent are the enduring traditions of folk ark, beadwork, wood sculptures, and snakeskin creations. Seventh-day Adventist membership growth has been gradual since it began 40 years ago, and the majority of the members are younger than 35 years of age. Youth are involved in house-to-house visitation; ADRA sponsors a milk project for malnourished children; and nurses go out from the dispensary to give vaccinations, treatments, and health lectures. A House of Prayer for Muslims has been planned as well as an Adventist World Radio production center to develop programming for Portuguese-speaking Africa.
