Cégep de la Gaspésie et des Îles to carry out two new projects in Senegal with CICan support

March 1, 2017

The CÉGEP de la Gaspésie et des Îles will build on its 20-year history of working in Senegal by taking on two projects with the support of new funding from Colleges and Institutes Canada. The school will continue a project that it first undertook with Cégep Limoilou four years ago to train senior technicians who will work on systems dedicated to irrigation for small-scale agriculture. The second project will see the cégep support the Agricultural Technical School Émile Badiane in Bignona for the implementation of a program in the agro-food industry. The school will use the opportunity to build on earlier work related to the education of trainers following the development of an implementation plan last November. Gaspésie
