Ecological sustainability and the promotion of (small) livestock farming, Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso

Titre : Ecological sustainability and the promotion of (small) livestock farming, Burkina Faso

Pays /Région : Burkina Faso
Localisation : Villages Gonsé and Gampela

Durée : 2009-2010

Présentation
In this project Heifer and the Louis Bolk Institute collaborate in the neighbourhood of the villages Gonsé and Gampela in Burkina Faso. The Burkinan organisation ASUDEC gives ’living loans’ according to the Heifer philosophy : families receive chickens, goats and sheep and the loan is paid off by passing on the offspring of the livestock. The manure of the livestock is used as organic fertilizer in agricultural farming and market gardening. The families are trained in sustainable agricultural methods and the production of more varied and productive crops. In order to restore the ecosystem, 15,000 young trees and bushes are being planted.

Financement : The Turing Foundation financed this project of the Burkinan organisation ASUDEC through the Heifer/Louis Bolk Institute (€ 35,000).
