Ndeye Diop, 29, lives in Walo with her two children. She describes Walo as a “small melting pot surrounded by baobab trees.” Ndeye is an active participant in Walo’s new agricultural cooperative.
Ndeye “welcomes the good work that CREATE! is doing in Walo” and now foresees a prosperous future for her community. She appreciates the firewood savings that she realizes by using her improved cookstove. Ndeye is also excited about CREATE!’s upcoming tree planting program in Walo.
Ndeye also praises CREATE!’s recent rehabilitation of Walo’s community well. With a new solar powered water pumping system, village women no longer need to draw water by hand from the well. Thanks to CREATE!, Ndeye adds, “hope is reborn in our village.”
