Join Alliance Française and Compatible Technology International (CTI) for a presentation on their recent trip to Senegal. In January and February, Alliance members and our Education Coordinator Alix Lewis-Sadrant partnered with CTI donors to visit Senegal. While there, they visited Dakar, St. Louis, Thies and Toubab Dialao. During the trip, the group learned about Senegalese and West African history. They also explored local universities, and participated in art workshops.

Qu’est-ce que c’est CTI ?

CTI is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing families in developing countries access to farming tools. These tools enable producers to grow more sustainably. They also empower them to bring crops to market. In Senegal, CTI distributes grain threshers to help increase agricultural output. This then eases the burden on local farmers.

The group from AFMSP toured CTI’s site in Thies and then met their staff. Highlights include visits to a metalsmith shop and a women-run farm! Revisit these experiences and more during AFMSP & CTI’s joint presentation.
