Heart of the project

Agriculture facing climate hazards

Guié is a village confronted for decades by droughts, desertification and malnutrition. The conventional cultivation of cereals in these territories is particularly sensitive to the rains that will follow the sowing. Traditional cyclical droughts are accompanied by « disturbances » of the rains, where the lack of rain at unusual times ruins crops. The erosions of soils aggravate the situation.

Audio-visual documentaries at the service of farmers

The cultural technique of zaï makes it possible to ensure the harvests by the concentration of rainwater in basins previously dug and filled with compost. It also allows better yields. In order to disseminate this practice, audio-visual documentary proves to be a particularly powerful tool of awareness, transmission and popularization, in particular by promoting positive and concrete achievements. It also helps to circumvent illiteracy.
