February 2017


Reintegration is now a reality because of the support of the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, through the funding obtained by ICA Japan, for 585 youth at risk in Agnéby-Tiassa region. The project for a second year, which will end on March 9, 2017, has been a success in view of the mobilization of our beneficiaries in the implementation of the programmed activities.

The major activities carried out in January have been as follows:
1Training in community development in the 5 new villages,
2 Incubation of 300 meat chicken eggs from brown race,
3 TOP training in capacity building for ICA-CI staff,
4 Activities in demonstration farm.

From the 17 to 21st. of January 2017 the project has been held under the supervision of Mr. Wayne, Co-Director of ICA-Japan, for community development training in the villages of N'gorankro, Niamanzra 1 and 2, Mure and Dey-Boguié. Its objective was to evaluate the activities planned in April 2016, by these villages, and to reactivate their action plans by giving priority to an activity to be carried out in year3. Information was given on the importance of setting up a community development committee, (CDC) as a tool for regulating and managing the various sub-projects.

This training was done in 2 steps:

Step 1
Review - Definition of Community development
The 4 principles: (economic, social, cultural and education)

Priority of action to be carried out for year 3
Planning of action plan

Step 2
Information on definition and importance of a
Community Development Committee

From January 23th to 27th, 2017, Mr. Wayne Ellsworth provided the Technology Method Training (TOP) to ICA-CI staff to strengthen their capacities for implementation of the project and its good management.

The mobilization of participants during these training days was effective in all villages, as we observed the presence of all age classes in the rooms. Also we recorded more than 50 participants in each village rather than the 40 people expected.

In order to allow beneficiaries of our project to get chicks quickly, we incubated 300 eggs of brown meat chicken on January 18, 2017. That will allow us to give chicks to the farm in Boka -oho on 07 February 2017.

The laying hens will enter their laying period in February, so at each farm we recorded the average of 15 platelets of eggs per day. The chickens of the second cycle are finished now in all farms. The volaillers are on stage for the inception of their third cycle.

Daisy flowers

The beneficiaries of the village of Mure where the demonstration farm is installed are setting up nurseries of carrots, onions, peppers, and tomatoes crops, selected for experimentation in the February project.

This implementation follows the development of Daisy flowers that went very well and compost production, which is an important factor in the demonstration that we want to make in this school.
