Social investment

Since the establishment of bp’s presence in Senegal, bp and partners have invested in the development of a social investment programme that enhances the quality of life in the communities we work in and creates long-term opportunities for local development. 


Local implementing organisations are partnering with bp to deliver our activities. 

All our activities are enabled by bp’s Ethics and Compliance requirements, to guarantee that transparent, inclusive and fair procedures are followed.

Following community consultation, four key areas were identified:

Community health

Promote the health of the people in the community by strengthening access and quality to health services and promote community awareness of hygiene and sanitation. Improving the technical capacity of local health care providers.
