Rita Diop

Project Coordinator Senegal: Perspectives for young people

Rita Diop, Frankfurt Lufthansa employee, discovered the work of help alliance in 1999 and spontaneously decided to help. The term “Friends of help alliance” hadn’t yet existed, but she would become exactly that in 2000. A year later, she joined the Lufthansa employee driven initiative and was elected first chairwomen in 2005.

Since then, she was relieved of her duties at Lufthansa so that she could fulfill her responsibilities as chairwoman of help alliance. In 2015 she decided to resign as the Chairwoman and focus her work on managing the help alliance projects.

She discovered the Leona project in Senegal during one of her many family visits to the country.
