A fervent defender of the cultural potential of his city, Saint-Louis, Senegal, Amadou Diaw, 60, was the first entrepreneur to invest in education systems in West Africa over 30 years ago. His fight for a rethought humanity is based on the fight against ignorance through education and culture.

Beyond offering a vast program of scholarships for excellence, he continues his philanthropic endeavor by sharing part of his personal collection with the MuPho, Museum of Photography in St. Louis opened in 2017.
