Development of profitable and sustainable economic activities for families in difficulty thanks to the creation of a farm.
In 1994, Khonou Djite Kane, Gardens and Green Space Officer at the Pullman Dakar Teranga, created GIE JAMM to support displaced families affected by separatist movements in Casamance.
In 2010, GIE JAMM created a farm to enable 15 families to recover economic stability and improve their family life. The families are organized into a cooperative and supervised and trained by an agricultural engineer and by the students of the National School of Horticulture of Senegal. They learn to cultivate and sell staple foods such as rice, millet and sorghum.
The Accor Foundation* supported the creation and the operations of this farm until it became autonomous.
* In 2013, the Accor Foundation became Solidarity Accor.
« I am happy to have contributed to the creation of a sustainable production mechanism supported by training, which will allow the beneficiaries to secure long-term revenue. ”
