Wow, Queen Sofia is so great! She looks so happy and I love her hands on approach to her job. Can you imagine seeing Queen Elizabeth sitting on the ground holding a baby?!

I think Queen Sofia is amazing! Firstly, she's had a busy week with the visit to France and now she's off again on another trip.

And secondly, I love it when the Queen visits lesser developed nations. To me, she always seems to be paying more attention and really taking in the trials and difficulties the people of those countries have faced.

And even before she was a doting grandmother, she naturally gravitated towards babies and children, holding them, hugging them and squatting down to their level and talking to them.

Queens don't come better than Sofia! :)

Dona Sofía visits in Senegal and Cape Verde the Spanish centers of cooperation

Dakar - The Queen initiated yesterday her trip of cooperation to Senegal and Cape Verde surrounded with newborn children, you drink orphan or left gathered in a center managed by a community of Franciscan missionary nuns of Maria and financed with contributions of Spanish and French families.
Accompanied by the first lady senegalesa, Viviane Wade, and for the secretary of State of International Cooperation, Leire Pajín, Dona Sofía listened to the explanations that sister Justina, director of the center The Pouponnere and with more than 40 years living in Africa, she was giving him on the difficulties of day after day.
The center is one of many solidary testimonies of the already long missionary presence in Senegal, a multiethnic country in which 94 per cent of thepopulation is Moslem, though the living together with the Christian minority (5 per cent) passes without problems. Spanish cooperation endorses the task of the Center of Infantile Reception across the technical office that ride opened from 2004 and that coordinates other projects in the north of the country, Saint Louis's region and in the South, in the Casamance. Projects that chase the eradication of the poverty and the marginalization and that try to stimulate the sustainable development.
