Project for Experimental Agriculture and Vegetable Farming
In Burkina Faso, the Foundation cooperates with Yennenga Progress which has a vision to create sustainable communities in countries that still have no functioning welfare system.
Yennenga supports a number of projects in the village Nakamtenga, and the agricultural project that was launched recently is an important piece to create local work opportunities and local sources of income, as well as spreading knowledge on how to become self-sufficient year-round.
The Foundation paid for the purchase of the land, fencing it in, building its own well and water tower, and the first plantation.
The cooperation has been ongoing since the second half of 2019. Despite the almost total lockdown from mid-March until September 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the work has continued, and production of local ecological vegetables has been in full swing since the ending of the rain period of 2020.
This is a project that is part of the Yennenga vision of “The Good Village” which you may read more about on their homepage.
