Queen Letizia left the capital of Dakar today to travel to the Ziguinchor region as she continued her four-day visit to Senegal to see first-hand the work carried out by the Spanish Cooperation in the west African country.
The Spanish Cooperation is the sum of all people, institutions, resources and skills that Spain offers to developing countries with the end goal of contributing to human development, the eradication of poverty and full access to rights.
Her first stop was the Faculty of Medicine at the Ziguinchor University in Casamance where she attended the launch of a training program for medical professionals designed to help stop the practice of female genital mutilation in southern Senegal.
Later, the Queen of Spain visited a family agroecological farm being supported by the Spanish Cooperation.
Her Majesty concluded the day with a meeting of Spanish Cooperation volunteers in the Casamance area to learn more about the projects that are being carried out in the region.
Queen Letizia opted for a modest look today, a befitting choice given the sensitive content of her visit. Her low-key attire consisted of a khaki green blouse and her cream Massimo crepe trousers. Unfortunately we do not know the origin of the shirt.
On her feet she wore understated tan Oxford shoes which Letizia debuted in July 2013 on a visit to the Sierra de Guadarrama.
She finished off her discreet style with a simple low ponytail and small diamond stud earrings.
