Our friend Dillon with AED in Mali sent us some photos from our first project in the Dogon region, Kanikombole.
We know how tough the desert is for agriculture, so we are glad to see that the advent of water is making a difference in Dogon lives! The products of the garden will be used to feed Kanikombole villagers, with the excess to be sold for profit.
Everyone is very happy that the nursery (photos above and below) is doing so well — “a veritable oasis among the sand dunes of the plain,” Dillon says!
