EMAS international course at Kolda

For a second time within 2019 we went back to Kolda, Senegal. In cooperation with  the spanish NGO AIDA an EMAS international training course was held for 15 trainees who came from Senegal, Guinea Bissau and Mali. As part of training 3 EMAS wells have been drilled (each 22 meters deep). Two of them for solar irrigation and one for household manual pumping.

As for demonstration purposes other EMAS technologies have been build such as a latrine and shower cubicles and a rainwater harvesting system.

Also 5 drilling equipments have been constructed by the trainees: each one for Mali and Guinea Bissau and 3  for Senegal. Watch our videos!
