New community developement agriculture project

The activity focussed on the development of the silk sector in the district of Thateng has led to the self-reliance of families from now on managing themselves the production.

The SFE team is now pursuing its action with a community agricultural development project that has been started last August. 6000 villagers of the district of Tatheng can benefit of training, material as well as technical support. The expected result will be the improvement of agricultural production, the access to water supply and the development of small husbandries. Various activities will enable families to ensure their self-reliance and food security.

Two expatriates together with 11 local employees (staff) are carrying out all these activities and the beginnings are promising

New phase in community development project

the Community Health Development Project is continuing with a second phase concerning 13 new villages.

During the first phase, 2010-2013, the percentage of people suffering of intestinal parasites (worms) has been reduced from 62% to 32%, these rates are to be put in parallel with the fact that 94% of the families are using toilets versus 3% in 2010. To be noted also, that more than 67% of the population knows how to treat diarrhea versus 27% in 2010.

The training of health volunteers in each village is a major point of our engagement on the ground.
