#18 Faraba, Moringa Garden (Part 2)

Location: Faraba, Kolda, Senegal

Community Description: Smack in the middle of two villages is a vast stretch of farmland. About 95 men and women farm here during the rainy season, but only 7 garden during the dry season because of a lack of water. The 7 lucky gardeners own plots near the river so during the dry season they easily pull water. One of these plots, owned by Mamadou Barry (who we learned about in the last post) and Ballal Agribusiness, is serving as a Moringa garden, community learning space, and a women’s group garden. This is the second of the two pumps installed here.

Project Description: We are placing a second water pump in the Faraba Moringa Garden in order for the women’s group, who works there, to start their own vegetable garden. They will plant onions, okra, and hot pepper then harvest and sell them in the Kolda market.

Project Impact: 18 women and 7 men directly, The families of them are impacted indirectly.

Peace Corps Volunteers Directing Project: Jacob Rice, Gregg Mathews, Mary Martin-Mabry, and Marcie Todd
