For several years in the Azopè department, Gandhi has been financing different groups of women, dedicated to the growing and cultivation of the cassava plant, a tuber which provides a fundamental part of the local diet. The cassava is made into flour and re-sold, guaranteeing a small income for the women.
In Abdijan Gandhi supports a women’s cooperative that has set up a chicken rearing business.
Cultural aggregation centre
The aim of this centre is to give local artists the opportunity to realize their own artistic projects, creating a synergistic and stimulating environment. The idea is for the centre to act as a “ display window” for the work produced and also a stage for performances, focusing on being able to generate a small income and a self sufficient lifestyle.
