Experts-Solidaires and the Women's Association for Self-Promotion  are working together to set up a food processing project to improve families' dietary conditions and generate income for 7 farmer groups (200 women in total) in Pala in southwestern Chad. The activities foreseen in this project include training in agro-food processing, assisted acquisition of equipment, support to the 7 groups for the management and marketing of products, and a social component aimed at limiting violence against women.

  • the steaming activity of laughing by the grouping of widows of Pala
  • the transformation of maize into flour 
  • fruit processing activity 
  • the valuation activity of cashew nuts
