October 2022: "Project management assistance" mission in Senegal


Intervention of an AVe "project management" expert in Djilas Senegal 


At the end of October 2022, Eric, an AVe expert, went to the commune of Djilas, south of Dakar (Senegal), to a health center belonging to a religious congregation. This was Eric's second trip to Djilas. The objective of the mission was achieved: following meetings with different companies (construction, water connection, electrical connection...), a contract for the construction of a new health center and a new maternity ward was finalized and signed. For the religious congregation, this represents an important contract. The intervention of the expert allowed to specify the plans, the estimates, the different points of the specifications of the building constructions and thus to avoid several pitfalls during the construction. From now on, the works will start for a period of 10 months with a remote control of the expert and a visit on the spot if necessary.

September 2021 : project management assistance mission in Djilas - Senegal

1st AVe mission "project management assistance" for the construction of a dispensary and a maternity hospital in Djilas, a village located 150 km south of Dakar

Following the request of a religious congregation, Eric, an AVe expert specialized in building design, carried out a project management assistance mission for the renovation and construction of a dispensary and a maternity ward in their health center in Djilas. The size and condition of the current buildings no longer correspond to the rapidly increasing demand or to the standards of hygiene and cleanliness. The congregation of the sisters has been established since 1974 in the village of Djilas located about two and a half hours from Dakar.

January 2019 : 2nd AVe mission for the Laiterie du Berger - Senegal

Technical mission to the Laiterie du Berger in Richard Toll

As part of the agreement between the Laiterie du Berger, the In Vivo Foundation and AVe, Jean Paul and Gilbert, AVe experts, carried out a technical mission to Richard Toll (Senegal) in January 2019. During the previous AVe mission in May 2018, Daniel and Louis, following their diagnosis, had indicated that the most effective lever to increase milk production was the cow's feed in the dairy collection area. These cows,  zebu breed, produced 1 to 2 liters of milk per day. By improving feed, this production can be doubled. As the collection area is located near an irrigated area (development of the Senegal river) with a major sugar cane plantation (17,000 ha), the idea is to use two sugar cane by-products to feed cows : mooring lines (the end of sugar cane straws) left on the plot and molasses, a by-product of the cane refinery.
