“A l’ombra del mango”

25 May 2017 at 10:18

“A l’ombra del mango” is the result of what happens when two entrepreneurs, one 84 years old and the other 27, come together to carry out a project: the Cooperativa de las Madres de Ziguinchor (Senegal).

“A l’ombra del mango” is also a report in the form of a short documentary that proposes a solution to the reality of most Senegalese women regarding the education of their children.

This piece explains the experience of Georgina Regàs and Mamadou Saliou that they decide to undertake a common project to give job to three Senegalese women and offer them resources to pay their children’s school.
