In a previous article we spoke about the pigsties that are being developed in Bouassa. They haven’t been financed yet, but communication have begun with a Belgian organization and we hope the project will see the light very soon. They are already 33 people who want to be trained at this pig farm and this farm will quickly become a farming school. Mr. Toboua, a retired agricultural technician and trainer, will be in charge of this project. However, other projects are underway. They all show this community involvement to make Kougpélin, the neighborhood where Bouassa is located, where water pump was built in 2015, a model community that will inspire other neighborhoods!

To date, the following projects underway and in need of funding:

A health program: €3,000


This program consists of bringing awareness to medical visits and the distribution of essential basic care, when needed.

Two retired health workers are active in this program:

Ms. Clarisse Guigma and Mrs. Marie Toboua. They are assisted by other volunteers.

The following items are needed for this program:

  • Medicine (A small stock of products to respond to emergencies)
  • Blood Pressure tool
  • A kit for measuring blood glucose levels
  • Thermometers
  • Hospital gowns and gloves
  • Medical alcohol
  • Injection kits
  • Fuel and a little food


A children’s mentoring program: €3,000


Here again the people are ready to get involved. This would build an open shelter for the children to take regular meals out of the sun, read educational materials (notebooks, pencils, books for reading, etc.). Some benches and wooden tables for homework to help school children would be built and of course, rice bags and tins of sardines for regular meals. And a soccer ball, for the kids to be able to play together. The children in the community doesn’t even have a soccer ball!


A program for personal hygiene: €1,000


The ladies who will be involved in the health field would also propose small awareness meetings in basic personal hygiene and distribute kits with toothbrushes, toothpaste and soap.


A brick building program: €1,600


Many neighborhood youth are unemployed, some are trained masons. So to start, they would set up a small brickyard to manufacture cement cinder blocks and sell them at the end of the main road.


Ideas abound, other projects are beginning to emerge in the heart of many. It is a movement that we want to encourage and you can help practically by making special donations. Visit our site  and make sure to specify where you want your donation to go.
