ASSOCIATION FARANFARE and STICHTING FARANFARE MALI,
are developing an agricultural project with the local people in the region of Kayes. This area is extremely difficult because of a shortage of water. We are looking for donors and sponsors for development of this area. By working directly with local people we are able to positively effect the economic development in the most needy areas.
One of our priorities was the installation of a well in the village Seke, 10 km from Kayes, which was extremely urgent in this dry area. Last year there was only few rain during the rain season and the farmers were desperate.
The well has been recently built due to the investment of Association Faranfare and Stichting Faranfare Mali. With the donations of our members we could help this village. The inhabitants of Seke and the farmers in this area are sharing the use of the well. Gardien Boubacar is happy to take care of this project and to run it smoothly.
Another priority was a Taxi-Schoolbus for the village Seke, at a distance of 10 km of Kayes. They needed a Taxi-Schoolbus to transport sick people and pregnant women to the nearest Hospital in Kayes.
And to transport children who are going to school in Kayes while they have to walk normally this distance every day.
Association Faranfare organised recently a fundraising with MicroDon in Supermarket Franprix in Paris to collect money for this Taxi-Schoolbus project. We raised the money, bought the Taxi-Schoolbus and the inhabitants of Seke are using it now daily.
The next priority will be solar cookers for the women in Ambidedi Khore in the Kayes region. We'll keep you posted.
