This work has been developed in collaboration with the NGO Action Against Hunger– Spain (Acción Contra el Hambre – España ACF–E). Since 2007, ACF-E is fighting food insecurity in Mauritania with the development of vegetables gardens run by women’s cooperatives. The vegetables produced are used to complement the diet of the population, mostly based on crops cultivated during the raining period (from June to September). This complement is particularly important when the grain stocks are being depleted, from February to the new harvest. Moreover, vegetables are a source of vitamins which can not been found otherwise in the daily diet of the population.
