Two of our ten weeks of training were spent in our future town, getting to know our jobs and the area. My primary job is with Organisation Afrique Culture Plus, or OACP. OACP is a cooperative that makes tea from a local plant, Kinkéliba. They are a small organization that is in the process of growing. They are trying to mechanize production and tap further into the surrounding markets in other West African countries. I have been asked to help them grow. This is a photo of Gerard, the organization’s director, in front of the cooperative.
