I just recently returned from a weeklong trip to Senegal. Myself two staff and 10 other PCVs went to look at PC Senegal’s Master Farmer program. It’s a great program where you take a counterpart and teach them improved techniques in farmer and gardening and then use their land as an example farm/garden and then bring other host country nationals to their site and let your counterpart explain what they are doing and the benefits of it all. PC The Gambia is hoping to implement a similar program in the next year, that was the reason for the trip.
