We had two Skype / WhatsApp sessions with CANE, F. Atlântico, F. Ondjyla and Nearsoft to prioritize themes for the development of an App.
With the participation of eight technicians from the Technical Assistance Project and Rural Extensions, a working session was organized, with the goal of constructing metrics for the third part of data gathering, from the 182 families. This metrics are fundamental to obtain future comparison terms, that is, “ground zero identification” (prior to field work developed by the 8 technicians). It will then allow for cyclical data gathering (annual or tri-annual), facilitating the impact analysis on the intervention from CANE in the field. We also identified themes for small training sessions for farmers.
We made several field visits, being received and accompanied by the President of Dombe Grande’s Farmer’s Cooperative (CAPIAD), Mr. Rosa Flor. We were able to observe the dynamism of some small farmers, that farm irrigated crops and have their own water pumps.
In an African language, Ondjyla is an expression that means “path”. Fondation Ondjyla is thoroughly engaged in helping young people building the path of their lives, making them the authors of their destiny.
The foundation is engaged with the promotion of knowledge, education, entrepreneurship and exchange, with a particular focus on African young people, contributing to the empowerment, sustainability and development of people and communities, especially children and those who are young.
Fondation Ondjyla believes that the access to an education focused on vocational training may have a strong impact on the living conditions of young people that are now preparing themselves for the labour market and their families. The foundation wishes also to provide to the different populations the tools and the option to develop an economic activity which will ensure them decent living conditions near the communities where they grew up and in which they are integrated.
