Support an eco-farm in Benin with a solar-powered mill!

A project from Greening Africa Together/Alle Hand in Hand, e.V.
in Parakou, Benin

We, Greening Africa Together, want to support an NGO to build a school in Benin and support the community. The women of the community have to walk 10 km to grind cereals. A local solar-powered mill will change this. Let's make it possible together!

About this project

Greening Africa Together (GATo) is a network of African and international: NGOs, universities (from Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, DR Congo, Kenya, Senegal, Togo, Uganda and TU Berlin ) and communities which work together to encourage sustainable development.

The NGO “New Humanity owns a piece of land in Kpassagambou-Benin. It has already built with GaTo in the last few years a permaculture and agroforestry garden, a well with a solar pump, a pig, and chicken house, and a sanitary system. Furthermore a biogas digester was installed to provide biogas for cooking and reduce deforestation. We want to continue at this point.

Our aim is to support the NGO by helping in the design, construction, and installation of this basic infrastructure in order to lay the foundations for a communitarian school. Simultaneously it will encourage health awareness and renewable energies while respecting local traditions and empowering the community towards self-sufficiency. 

The next step in the realization of the school and the support of the local community is the installation of a solar-powered mill in summer 2022. The mill can be used by the people on the farm and the people in the surrounding village. 
Crushed cereals and grains are part of the daily local diet. Currently the women in the village have to walk 5 km to the next diesel-powered mill. For this reason, they have asked for a local mill. Support us to fulfill this wish and provide an economical initiative for the school and support the community.  

Additionally maintenance work on the PV system of the Biofarm has to be carried out and community trainings will be organised to ensure that everyone in the community can benefit from the appliances on the Biofarm.

The project is designed to be sustainable and reduce CO2 emissions in an effort to guide towards self-sufficiency and education. The whole community especially the women and girls will benefit from this project.

Thank you for taking the time to read, donate, and don’t forget to share!
