The project stems from the need of the women of Ouro Koin, in the Republic of Mali, to improve their conditions. It consists in the supply and installation of a mill and of a pipe system for carrying the water of the well, previously built by Association Kanagà 2008 Onlus. By creating a committee, the women acquired entrepreneurial autonomy and economic independence by financially managing the mill and its operations. This practice allowed them to save energy and time and devote themselves to other activities, with an increase of the schooling rate, health and hygienic conditions of the population.
