Construction of a granary and a silo for the community

March 1, 2018

In February, with the collaboration of our partner Mouvement Paysan Papaye (MPP) and the financial support of the Roncalli Foundation, construction began on a granary and silo for the drying and storage of grain. This project will enable the community to be better equipped and less vulnerable in the case of epidemics or bad weather.

In 2016, KANPE and its partner MPP supported the local farmers’ association (ODB) in efforts to revive agriculture in the community after many years of drought.  ODB’s seed bank has been replenished following a very successful harvest.

In order to provide its members with quality seeds each spring, the organization needs only minimal infrastructure to dry the harvested produce and store it in good conditions.

The different stages of construction:
