Construction of the grain bank in Sal-Dimi

Je suis très content de vous donner les nouvelles du village de Sal-Dimi, et le bilan de la récolte.

Par rapport à la banque de céréale de Sal-Dimi, non seulement la population mais aussi les villages environnant ont remercié la Fondation Tandana pour sa construction de banque de céréale à Sal-Dimi ca les a permis beaucoup pour eviter les transports dans l’achat du mil

Farming millet

Aujourd’hui, leurs idées est de montrer aux autres que la fondation Tandana joue un rôle fondamental dans le développement rurale des villages dans la commune rurale de Wadouba.
Leurs souhaits est d’organiser une fête comme l’anniversaire de Tandana.

Sacks of millet in the grain bank, essential to survival during the dry season, and especially the difficult farming season.

I am very happy to give you news from Sal-Dimi and an assessment of the harvest.  I spoke on the telephone with the adjunct to the chief of Sal-Dimi for an update on the harvest, the grain bank, and other things. First of all, the people of Sal-Dimi thanked The Tandana Foundation very much for the food assistance, and thanks to God, they were able to make it through the difficult months of hard work in the fields.  Thank God and may God thank Tandana.  This year the harvest is better than in other years.  Some have already finished bringing in their harvest, and others are near the end of harvesting.

As to the grain bank, not only the people of Sal-Dimi, but also those of the neighboring villages thank The Tandana Foundation for building the grain bank.  It helped them a lot by letting them avoid transportation difficulties and making it possible for them to buy millet.  Now, their idea is to show others that The Tandana Foundation plays a fundamental role in the rural development of the villages of the Commune of Wadouba.  Their desire is to organize a party as the birthday of Tandana.
