Diop “Gilles” Sileye
Abdoul has always had a great passion for his peers
when it comes to health care issues and HIV prevention.
So passionate actually that after participating in
a STI and HIV/AIDS training course, together with friends,
Diop decided to establish SOS PE, a local non-governmental
Founded in 1999 in Nouakchott, SOS PE has grown both
in its size and its experience in terms of administrative
management, project planning, follow-up and evaluation
associated to HIV prevention. SOS PE staff skills
were reinforced by continuous training sessions and
by technical and financial support guaranteed by international
institutions and NGOs such as UNFPA, FLM, World Vision
and FHI/ Ivory Coast. In September 2003, a new Youth
Information Center has been set up after 5-year s of
experience in social mobilization for health.
Diop dislikes arrogance and hypocrisy. He is very sociable.
He loves reading books, listening to music and traveling.
His role models are Francis Cabrel in music, and Michael
Jordan in sports.
