In Senegal we were very fortunate to be connected with the Yakaar Niani Wulli Koussanar groups producers of organic cotton farming and production.
The groups are situated in eastern Senegal (Region Tambacounda) around their activities support a vision of agroecological development of their land: the "Niani" and "Wulli". Mandings ancient kingdoms, these two lands are united ("Yakaar" = set) to fight against poverty, promoting respect for the environment and local values.
A big thanks to Wiser Earth for making this connection possible.
