Mr. SARR Khalifa Ababacar was born on September 5, 1976 in Pire Gourèye, a rural town located in the department of Tivaouane (region of Thiès). My village of origin is Ndiffife which constitutes one of the human settlements of the Arrondissement of Pambal, localizable to 2.5 km to the West of Pire Gourèye. This village was founded in the 1850s by the ancestor Tafsir Moussé SARR, a wise scholar of Islam and great Moukhadam of Seydil Hadji Malick SY (RTA) of Tivaouane.
Khalifa A. SARR made his debut at the elementary elementary school of Pire Gourèye between 1983 and 1985. After two years of study (CI and CP) in this knowledge center, primary school Khaly Amar FALL of the Diacksao road, Given the difficulties of access and supervision in studies well known in Pire, his father El Hadji Bara decided to transfer him to Ngaye Méckhé, an urban commune adjoining Pire Gourèye on his way to Saint-Louis. Arrived at his Serigne, homonym and son-in-law Marabout Khalifa DIAGNE, Grand Master Koran at Ngaye DIAGNE, Mbaye SARR not only integrated the class of CE1 in elementary elementary school of Meckhe 3 in 1985, but he also allied Koranic training under good control.

Four years later, he obtained the BFEM (Patent of End of Middle Study) from the first round of the 1994 session of the exams and competitions of the Middle. He was sent to the Lycee de Tivaouane, but his father, Sergeant-Chef El Hadji Malick SARR, drew him to Dakar.

In the same way, it was the section of Geography of the UFR (Unit of Formation and Research) of Letters and Human Sciences which welcomed it. Consequently, the academic year 1997-1998 also suffered severe disruptions resulting in a single session: that of October 1998 which would have allowed us to enter the second year of Geography. The applicant SARR had the DEUG (Diploma of General University Studies) in 2000, the License (option: Development of the Territory) in 2001 and the Master's Degree in 2004.
