For almost 30 years, Enda Pro Nat is committed to the promotion of agro-ecology. It was created in 1982, following a study on pesticides showing that the massive and uncontrolled use of chemicals resulted in declining soil fertility and yields, intoxication of men and animals, with a consequent strong rural exodus.
Gradually, Enda Pro Nat has developed an approach of ‘action-research’ with farming communities to promote an alternative model of agriculture, healthy and sustainable and a more responsible management of soils. It offers workshops ‘field school’ training, exchange visits …
Since 2009, Pro Nat has also strongly committed to the fight against land grabbing, a phenomenon that is becoming increasingly important in Senegal and threatens farmers’ disappearance companies.
Volunteers are hosted by family, in rural areas, and join some of the daily activities of a local group. Through participation in workshops organized by the trade partner – selection and preservation of seeds, land grabs, environmental education… – and agricultural activities, voluntareers discover the realities of the Senegalese country and the challenges that peasants are dealing with
