On the 14th we began with training in entrepreneurship in the cultivation of raw materials for Mauritanian women living in Fuerteventura on knowledge in agriculture.

This initiative has arisen from the collaboration between AFRIMAC 2 and the Multicultural Association of Mauritanian Women DIMBE, an association whose goals include promoting and developing intercultural activities with entities and groups for gender equality.

The objectives of this are to bring training and education to the territory and support for entrepreneurship, innovation and female socio-labour development for Mauritanian women in Fuerteventura and Mauritania.

This training is being given by an agricultural technician who will explain the basics of the land, tools, seeds, pruning, dates, meteorology and other issues so that a garden can be managed and cultivated.

The training has 4 days, two of them were on September 14 and 15 and the other two will be on September 22 and 29. These first two days have been carried out with great success, the 8 participants of this training are very happy, eager and excited about the knowledge they are acquiring.

This training will also be transferred to Mauritania, where there are also orchards but, due to lack of knowledge, they cannot take the desired advantage.

On the morning of the 27th, a visit was made to the Pozo Negro Experimental Farm, where the participants have learned what they are, what they are for and how nurseries and fences are made. The nurseries are a set of facilities whose fundamental purpose is the production of plants and the fence serves to protect the plantations so that they are not eaten by animals. They have also learned the importance of earthworms in the plantation, since they are vital for the health of the soil, because they transport nutrients and minerals to the surface through their waste and the tunnels they dig oxygenate the earth.

The purpose of this visit has been for the Mauritanian women to be able to see in a more advanced way the phases of the cultivation that they have begun in the previous days, so that it can serve as inspiration and motivation for the future.
