Until we can finance the agricultural school, we already want to start with educational sessions for the young people of Kayes, Mali. There is again an acute famine going on, thats why we have to start as soon as possible to enable young men and women to be able to produce a range of vegetables and fruits as well as to breed chickens. We want to organize in cooperation with the university of Bamako 4 educational session, each consist of 15 participants with 42 days of practical learning.
Malnutrition, as a consequence to food insecurity, is a serious problem. Approximately one in every three children under the age of five is stunted. Poor nutrition affects physical and cognitive development. Mali currently has opportunities to improve agricultural diversification and the nutritional quality of the diet. This is the main objective of the Biopal-project. Create agricultural opportunities to fight against hunger, malnutrition and enable the Malian population to secure their lives.
The most useful and meaningful projects in these countries are based upon agriculture and livestock. Given the problem with chicken, eggs and meat in general and the associated high price, our project is focused on this area. 60 young people will be trained on how to raise and sell hatched chicks. The stables are built with our knowledge and are thereby adapted to the great heat. Each person will get a starting set of 15 chicks and a selling stable! Lets make them self-employed!
The project will ensure food security for the city of Kayes (250.000 citizens) and the 11 surrounding villages. The goal is to enable several villages and its farmers to be self-employed and to spread knowledge to several 1000 people each year. With our eco-friendly and biological way, we also hope to stop the spreading of the desert and to enable the future generation of Mali to use alternatives methodes.
