N'diob is located in the Fatick region. The community covers an area of 127 km² and is spread over 18 settlements. To the west of the community, the region is permeated by a fertile valley. Nature’s potential is what the inhabitants in N'diob want to preserve here. The community has been committed to going green for years and is striving to develop into a self-sufficient organic agricultural community independent of imports. Africa GreenTec would like to support this community in its endeavor, especially since it has been looking for renewable energy solutions and reliable partners for quite some time in order to build sustainable value chains.
In addition, Africa GreenTec has installed the first Cooltainer® "Made in Africa" in N'diob. The team is particularly proud of this. For the first time, the Cooltainer was produced in the new production facility in Dakar by local employees under the direction of Quirin Köppel. With the Cooltainer, farmers in the region, in particular, can store their crop yields in a cool place.
To increase safety in the village, the Africa GreenTec StreetUPs® (solar street lights) have also been installed throughout the village.
In cooperation with the cooperative and the mayor of N'diob, we are trying to further develop our ImpactProducts and test new business models.
Many of the people in N'diob are farmers. Thus, the lives of families and village communities depend on a functioning agriculture system. Currently, most farmers in the region depend on expensive diesel pumps to irrigate their fields.
Africa GreenTec's solar pumps and Cooltainers will drastically reduce the cost load for farmers in the region. Furthermore, Africa GreenTec’s solar pumps have a high output, which also enables the cultivation of larger number of fields, thus generating more income for the farmers.
