Grant information

Recipient community: Women's association in Djonou

Village: Djonou, Côte d'Ivoire

Number of community members reached: 35 women

Description: The women’s association in Djonou asked for US $1000 to buy agricultural equipment (a cassava grinder (not pictured), cassava presses, machettes, hand plows, watering cans and more). This helps the women in their work in the fields and enables them to process their cassava into Attiéke, a local dish similar to couscous, which can be sold at a higher market price. This will increase their earnings, allowing them to pay for school fees for their children, seek healthcare when ill, etc. (Updated Dec. 9, 2021)
