What keeps us busy
In January we travelled to Kanso. The third class building of the school is already being built, with the aim of starting to teach the second cycle of baccalaureate from the 2020-21 academic year. The new adult literacy course has begun.
Thanks to the school canteen we have been able to improve the health of the students a lot: the last medical review indicates that, of the more than 130 students, there is only one with malnutrition. Last year they were 40%.
The women cooperative of the Kanso market garden has been officially established. There are already 80 women registered. Currently the plantation is mostly of lettuce and cabbage. Women are asking us to have more water to increase the cultivation area.
The rice harvest has increased markedly thanks to the tractor we acquired last year (we estimate the increase between 250% and 400%). We are very happy because this project is contributing very positively to the self-sufficiency and economic development of the area!
We are defining a new project to help Kanso women produce shea butter, and thus contribute to their empowerment and the development of the village.
