The few rains a year are just enough to wrest millet from the barren soil, the most important staple food. Thanks to the great commitment of our Group and a donation of 6,200 euros, the women of Back-Seck have now been able to fulfil a long-awaited wish: the purchase of a modern millet mill including a new building for accommodation. Whereas millet had to be laboriously crushed in the past, a diesel-powered machine is now making a quantum leap in making work easier.

Women are happy about a modern millet mill. Brooding heat, hardly any rain and salty wells: The women in Back-Seck, a village in the Sahel zone with around 7,000 inhabitants in northern Senegal, do not have it easy to ensure daily nutrition for their families.
