Casamance, in southern Senegal, is an area very exposed to the threat of food insecurity, from Kassumay Foundation we are developing garden projects managed by women from various communities, with the aim of strengthening their economic and social autonomy, and promoting food sovereignty.

Through the project, the women who manage these lands receive specific training in agricultural matters that helps them grow their products in a sustainable way and in harmony with the environment. Finally, the project also has training and advice on food processing (jams, preserves, ...) as well as literacy. The women who are part of the projects organize and work together, exchange knowledge and define the production and marketing strategies of the products.
