The Jahkarlo Farmer project was born from the idea of creating a space dedicated to a strong and healthy future for anyone interested in or working in the agricultural sector. Our recently built farm is maintained through strong community participation and simultaneously acts as an example and encouragement for good agricultural practices and social cohesion to anybody visiting. The accompanying training center acts as a facility for knowledge exchange and education on solid agro-organic practices.
The project has three main activities of intervention: (1) Set-up of a centre for training, storage and food processing , (2) agroecological training:
Awareness-raising workshops for women and children in school on plastic pollution, and waste reduction.
Promoting women's empowerment through income-generating activities that provide direct access to food and better health.
Providing access to water and sanitation facilities. Educating people about the risks of polluted water and bad sanitation.
A series of cultural festivals under the motto "Diakarlo Al Thiossane - Meeting of Cultures".
Explore typical percussion instruments like the Djembe drum and the polyrhythms of West Africa
