Greening Africa Together (GATo) is a network of African and international NGOs, universities (among them the TU Berlin) and local communities developing service learning projects in favor of the local populations for which the establishment of sustainable local development remains a real challenge.
Our project in Benin is located on the farm created by NGO New Humanity to serve as a refuge for homeless children and orphans. For the realization of this project, however, additional resources are needed. The main aim of GATo is to help setting up an ecological farm.
This aim will be achieved with the assistance of a group of students from Benin, Senegal, DR Congo and TU Berlin and the local NGO.
As part of the Summer School 2019 the following measures were implemented:
- Construction of a chicken coop for future poultry farming for food production and sale
