Our Activities

SDG Camp

In August 2020, Sahel network team also partnered with the SDG Student hub at UCAD and organized a study trip to the Delta of Saloum. The trip’s objective was to identify the need of those populations and reflect on potential sustainable development projects. We are preparing a report and a documentary in English and French about the challenges faced by the island community.

Plantation techniques

In August 2020, we ran a camp to educate participants plantation techniques in reforestation, sowing in hotbeds, composting techniques and various ways to maintain a greenhouse.
