Due to climate change, rapid population growth and rural emigration, Senegal will be facing significant challenges in ensuring food security. To tackle these challenges, Entente, a rice farm in Senegal, aims to implement a sustainable agriculture system with a specific focus on local production and green energy. In addition, they want to promote young entrepreneurship and female employment.
Our project, in collaboration with Ondernemers voor ondernemers, has 2 main goals. Firstly, we will install solar panels at Entente to cool a storage room for fruits and vegetables. Secondly, we will design and build a biodigestor to produce biogas from organic waste. This biogas will be mainly used for cooking.
