The population of the rural community of Fimela in the Sine Saloum Delta is highly vulnerable in terms of food security. Agricultural yields and food production have been affected by climate change and the impact of the COVID-19 health crisis.
At Santander BEST Africa we developed this project in collaboration with Enraíza Derechos and SAPOP. We intend to strengthen the horticultural production capacities of 15 women from Fimela in the farm school and organic garden launched by SAPOP in 2018. Through this action we boost horticultural production, self-employment and the generation of stable income for women in the community throughout the year.
