External Resources

Here you will find external links to resources pertaining to Seereer religion, history, culture, health, social media, radio stations, etc. You will also find other general resources such as: list of hospitals/clinics, schools and lawyers in Senegal, Gambia and Mauritania. Please read the description box as some of these organisations do not have a website. Where this is the case, we have provded their address, telephone and/or fax number so that you can contact them direct. Please call them first before turning up (especially hospitals) as information may change. We have also included organisations that provide support to LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgendered) communities. Almost all of these LGBT organisations are based outside Senegal, Gambia and Mauritania. However they may be able to help you via e-mail if you require support.

Please browse through the categories and select your desired topic of interest. Note that our "Link Application (or feature)" does not accept French characters. As such some references with French (or non-English) characters are written without the French "accent". We apologise for any inconvenience.  For the full list of references relating to Seereer history, culture, religion, etc., including their proper non-English titles, please see the Seereer Library. If you come across an important Seereer related link or website which you think should be added to our list below, please write to us via our contact page together with the url of the website.

  • These Seereer related Facebook pages are for holding general discussions, sharing and connecting with other members of the Seereer community.

  • A good reference for genealogical and family history research as well as surname study, although they are seldom used for that. Most of these surname groups are closed groups, which means you have to be accepted to the group first before you can post or see posts. To be accepted, you must click "join this group" at the top of the page. Some surnames may have more than one page or group. Only the groups or main pages with the largest members are listed here. Before setting up a Seereer related page or group (e.g. surname) on Facebook or Twitter, please perform a search first in the search box to see whether the group actually exist. If a group exists, please request to join that group rather than creating a duplicate group of the same Seereer surname or subject. This helps to centralise all relevant Seereer groups under one page. If you come across a duplicate of the same name, join the group with the most members. You can also send a message to the administrators of those groups telling them that they are duplicates of the same topic, and perhaps a merger would be best in order to centralise debate. Search for both the French and English spelling and variations e.g. "Joof family" would be "famille Diouf" in French, Njie would be Ndiaye, Jon would be Ndione and so on.

  • This is a list of LGBT support groups or organisations (worldwide). This list is not exhaustive. If you are a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered or need confidential advice about anything LGBT related, you may find the external resources (below) useful.

You are advised that it is a criminal offense to be engaged in homosexual activity in Senegal, Gambia and Mauritania and doing so may cost you your life or land you a prison sentence. Please carry out your own research about each country's current legislation. Legislations do change, but as of 2013, homosexual activity is illegal in all three countries (Senegal, Gambia and Mauritania). There are very few (if any) LGBT support groups in Senegal, Gambia and Mauritania. Some of the following international organisations may be able to help you if you ever need support. You can e-mail them direct if telephoning them is impractical. It is your responsibility to keep yourself safe and protect your emails from prying eyes. Please use common sense and protect yourself as these three countries are dangerous places to live if you are LGBT. For LGBT sexual health, see our sexual health category above.
