Here are some examples of projects that have emerged, and which are developing thanks to you and this collection of 1700 euros:
- traveling cuisines li>
- peanut processing li>
- corn processing li>
- soap production li>
- ... li>
These activities cover all sectors: the primary sector (agriculture, livestock ...), the secondary sector (product processing, embroidery, weaving ...) and the service sector (service crafts, local jobs, etc.).
This approach has already been tested with two of them, with the help of volunteers. They were trained in the field of trade and accounting, to enable them to set up their own business: one opened a liquid soap trade and the other specialized in the weaving of traditional loincloths.
The Bureau of the Amicale is composed of three literate widows.
The individual files are mounted, and the money distributed, with all the encouragement and good recommendations for the success of their income generating activity.
A first report was made by Toni, an English volunteer of a few weeks in April 2013. (see the report in PDF)
They are all very motivated and thank all donors for their support and confidence in this project. They are aware that their individual success will only be achieved through collective success, and therefore by a strong cohesion of the group.
We will accompany them every day, and wish them a great success!
