A prestigious Casamance institution offers internships and mentoring to students
At the invitation of the Institute of Travel and Tourism of The Gambia (ITTOG), the well-known expert in food processing, Noelle Niouke visited the No Woman Left Behind project from 3 to 6 October 2021.
Ms. Niouke, based in Ziguinchor, Senegal’s Casamance region, operates a food processing training institution: GIE DEMIIR
Ms. Niouke is an expert in food processing, especially fruit and vegetable processing and has traveled extensively throughout West Africa to train and exhibit her techniques at international trade fairs.
Visit and collaboration agreement
Mrs. Niouke was invited to speak to the student participants in our project about her experience as a female entrepreneur and also to act as a mentor in the project.
The NWLB project will sign an agreement with the training institution with the GIE DEMIIR that will cover areas of cooperation in the field of training, study visits to exchange ideas and the promotion of products produced by NWLB participants in the field of food processing.
To begin with, two students of the NWLB project of Casamance origin will do three weeks of work practice in their facilities.
The visit to the project by Noelle Niouke, from Casamance, allows the signing of a collaboration agreement with the Support Project in the form of mentoring and internships for female students in Senegal.
