ACCESS TO EDUCATION IN THE PORO REGION (CÔTE D’IVOIRE)
Construction of a nursery school in the village of Sinématiali
Alongside the DIBRA-SANTE project developed since 2018 in Côte d’Ivoire, another project entitled “DIBRA Education” was launched in 2021 to respond to the educational needs of the Poro region, which were amplified by the impacts of the Covid-19 epidemic that occurred in 2020. It was therefore decided to build a nursery school in the town of Sinématiali, which is not far from the mango production area. The project provides for the opening of three classrooms to accommodate around 40 pupils

The Group has close links with West Africa, particularly for its mangoes which comes from the four target countries: Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Mali and Senegal.
The production and export business for West African mangoes was created by SIIM over 30 years ago in Côte d’Ivoire and then extended to Mali, Burkina Faso and Senegal. This pan-African industry is professionalised and highly invested in sustainable and balanced development for all.
As the beneficiary of geographical conditions that are particularly well suited to mango cultivation (the mango tree is one of the most widespread fruit trees in West Africa, where it appeared during the 19th century), the sector meets the most socially and environmentally rigorous and compliance production standards.
In West Africa, the mango is a flagship product; according to the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations) “the sector in Côte d’Ivoire supports a rural community of 100,000 people”.
