With delegates from networks associated with PROCEFFA coming from all over the country, a training seminar for trainers was held. A collaboration agreement was established between PROCEFFA, F. ONDJYLA and AIMFR. Among the most important conclusions, there was the commitment to initiate the use of the Platform by developing and obtaining materials for the library and building the training modules and materials in two languages: French and English.
Two Working Sessions with the Technical Team were held, having as a starting point 2 models of intervention sucessfully experimented in several regions of Brazil. The models are denominated: "ATG - Technical and Management Assistance" and "From Farm to Table". The two models include the goals and expected results of the Dombe 4.0 Project. It was very interesting to find work methodologies in the 2 models adapted to our project. We had the opportunity to revisit the project, including the Logical Framework.
The 160 small farmers accompanied by the project started a new cycle of agricultural production, in this case, the bean campaign ("winter beans" / "cacimbo" - June to August). A system to deliver seeds and fertilizers to farmers has been established, according to their interest, area and working capacity. This is not a donation, but rather, a rotating "seed" fund. That is, farmers at the end of the harvest will give back 1,5 times the weight of the seeds they received, and return the value of the fertilizer in seeds. Considering an expected result of 1 to 12 in seeds harvested, the farmer has an interesting margin. And the project generates a "seed bank" that will be useful for the following campaigns. The 8 technicians accompany the 160 farmers in all stages of production, until harvest.
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.
