Brufut, Vrouwentuin

In Brufut gaan we de beschikbaarheid van vers voedsel verbeteren. Nadat de nieuwe Markthal in Brufut door ons is gerealiseerd, ontstaan er nieuwe kansen voor lokale producenten van verse groenten, fruit en kruiden. Kansen die ze de afgelopen 30 jaar niet hebben gehad, mede door de teloorgang van de oude markt en de opkomst van supermarkten die geïmporteerd voedsel verkopen.

Studenten van de Landbouwuniversiteit in Faraba onderzoeken de vereisten om dit te bereiken.

Ook onderzoeken ze of investeringen in koelinstallaties en kleinschalige productie verstandig en rendabel zijn.

Project Description (200 words)Brief summary of project backgrond, problem statement and justification


In Brufut, we will improve the availability of fresh food. After the new Market Hall in Brufut is realised by us, new opportunities will arise for local producers of fresh vegetables, fruit and herbs. Opportunities they have not had for the past 30 years, partly due to the decline of the old market and the rise of supermarkets selling imported food.

Students from the Agricultural University in Faraba are researching the requirements to achieve this.

They are also investigating whether investments in refrigeration systems and small-scale production are sensible and profitable.

Pending the research, we cannot yet draw up a budget, but for the time being we are assuming

€ 20.000.


Major goal

If we can improve production and marketing, the impact is felt by all the 400 families involved and by the whole village Brufut.

Specific objectives

The budget for the womengarden is € 20.000.






Expected outputs

To help a lot of people to increase their income by planting fruit, vegetables and spices for their family but also to sell this at the market. In times of food shortages, they have enough food for themselves.


Project Sustainability









In our project will be central the informal education. When we will have success to learn women sustainability methods, can this be an example for other women gardens in the country.
