Burkina Faso
At the beginning of 2017, with the help of Soroptimists International Voorne-Putten (NL), we constructed basic sanitary facilities (ventilated pit latrines) in rural southeastern Burkina Faso. The people of the village of Loanga and the adjacent hamlet Tanéré have now constructed three 'VIP' buildings, and a select group of women is in charge of keeping the buildings clean, and of sharing good hygiene practices. We aim to expand the project at different locations within the same region (Bissaland), as well as in one of Ouagadougou's townships.

A group of women will receive a training to plant local trees and grow nutritive vegetables. They will learn how to prepare seedbeds and how to transplant seedlings. They will have a plot of land where they can farm throughout the year. We will start with a small plot and a select group of women first, and the whole project will be coordinated and closely monitored by one of the R&S members, a resident of this township.

Our project allows members in the North Camden community to grow and collect their own produce for free. The remaining food is donated to a local church where they use it in their weekly food drives. This project was created by hardwork and determination from the Camden residents and numerous donations. What was once a vacant lot soon became a vibrant community garden! The garden is now maintained by community members and outside volunteers almost everyday. We want to make sure the garden continues to benefit the neighborhood, which requires constant watering and weeding.

I have the support of Dr. King, Country Trails principle and my third grade teacher Mrs. Robinson. Our club will meet once a month. Anyone in the school can join in if they would like. We will cover all areas of science. We will also do things that will benefit the local community. Examples of this would be an earth day clean up, as well as growing a vegetable garden, and donating the food to a local food pantry.

For the third year now, the Tom McCall Roots&Shoots group has planned to take 3 field trips to Nana Cardoon Urban Farm and Learning Center. Our primary objective would be to explore and have “hands on” experience with natural food systems. Nana Cardoon offers a rich environment for developing understanding of plant growth, harvest, processing, preservation, and preparation. A secondary objective would be developing deeper connections to our community and its assets. Expanding our understanding of Forest Grove will help us develop meaningful community projects.
