SOME OF OUR PROJECTS
Guediawaye Community Center -Phase 1
This project is dedicated to the late Malick Sarr who began this project to provide a beautiful community garden for a challenging neighborhood. Phase One was completed August 2018 with a new well, water reservoirs, a new electric pump, and drip irrigation to grow fruits and vegetables on a 1/4 hectare piece of land adjacent to Pikine East High School, in Senegal..
One of our goals is to assist others in the use of solar energy, drip irrigation, effective composting, aquaponics, and newer technologies. We want to development a place where people can come and learn, practice, and obtain assistance and planning for their future projects. We are always looking for places and connections with others to achieve this goal of helping as many people as possible.
Guediawaye Community Center -Phase 2
Phase 2 involves the conversion of our design to solar energy. Installation of a solar pump and solar panels will remove dependence on an inadequate and unreliable electrical system provided by the adjacent school.
We will complete Phase 2 by the end of May 2019.

Roff is a small village located 25 miles from Mbour, Thies Region, Senegal. We have partnered with the South Korean government to provide this wonderful village with filtered water for drinking, and to develop a 12 hectare farm.
