Solidarity Holidays in Mauritania

Do you want to put your trip to good use by participating in a local development project within a community organization? Our solidarity holidays emphasize meeting local populations and directly contributing to various activities in areas such as health, ecology, training, etc.

The Community Pharmacy of Tékane

ACTUME and its local partners financed the construction of a community pharmacy in the commune of Tékane in Mauritania which opened its doors in July 2022. This initiative facilitates access to care for all and serves as a place of orientation, information and exchanges dedicated to the health of the most deprived.

The Medicinal Plants Garden and the Artemisia House of Tékane

This project aims to develop a local sector for the production and distribution of medicinal plants in the town of Tékane in Mauritania. The project is thus consistent with the preservation of ecological heritage, in particular through its contribution to the conservation of biodiversity. Ultimately, this project could contribute to the creation of a Research and Development Center in Applied Phytotherapy (CRDPA).

The Tékane health center

Financed largely by a donation from a Swiss foundation, construction work on the Tékane Health Center is in the home stretch. The 1,200 m2 building is located near the Tékane Community Pharmacy and will have, when it is put into service, first-class equipment and staff, as well as a medical ambulance.
