The women of Kalogen initially started to grow vegetables in the community garden.  In 2019, they began training in sewing techniques as part of a training programme run by Spanish entrepreneur Laura del Pozo, creator of the PeSeta brand. As a result of this training, the women of Kalogen began to manufacture bags, pillowcases, spectacle cases or wallets that they sell at the Casamance Cultural Centre, a space that acts as a volunteer reception centre and tourist accommodation for travellers visiting the region.

At Santander BEST Africa, with the collaboration of "Solidarity Camps" and the technical support in the field of the NGO "Cineastas en Acción", we support Kalogen by facilitating the purchase of sewing equipment and materials and by financing a specific training programme in sewing techniques based on the traditional Casamance patterns.
