Retour sur l’inauguration de la Pharmacie Communautaire, du Jardin de Plantes Médicinales et de la Centrale de Pompage Solaire à Tékane en Mauritanie

A look back at the inauguration of the Community Pharmacy, the Garden of Medicinal Plants and the Solar Pumping Plant in Tékane, Mauritania

  • 3 sister associations
  • 3 operations favoring the structuring of the local economy
  • A united village and actor of its own development

The Mauritanian diaspora, like all those in the world, has maintained a very strong link with its country of origin. Several solidarity actions are carried out by the latter, most of whose members act anonymously. These actions are essential because they contribute to the development of the countries of the continent and the improvement of the well-being of the populations. The projects implemented affect practically all sectors of activity: health, agriculture, education, training, income-generating activities, etc.

ACTUME lauréate du prix « Afrique RSE Santé » 2022 – Catégorie Diapora

ACTUME winner of the 2022 “Africa CSR Health” prize – Diapora category

This trophy rewards our actions in Mauritania: health caravans and the Community Pharmacy and valorization of medicinal plants. Thank you very much to all our members, supporters, partners and volunteers.

The health caravans of the Association Against Tuberculosis and Endemic Diseases (ACTUME) were born from the observation of a glaring lack of care suffered by the populations of the municipality of Tékane in Mauritania. They have made it possible to treat 17,000 patients. In addition, the problem of access to medicines arose after the caravans because of the distance from the points of sale but also of their cost. It was therefore necessary to set up a community pharmacy and solidarity within the community.

[TECHFORGOOD] Hackadon édition 2022 – Les gagnants sont…

[TECHFORGOOD] Hackadon 2022 Edition – The Winners Are…

Each association will be followed by 4 to 5 student teams competing for 3 days !

On the occasion of the 7th anniversary of the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN, the solidarity company microDON in partnership with the EEMI (European School of Internet Professions), is organizing a “HACKADON” – a solidarity hackathon. For this new edition, more than 120 students with complementary specialties will mobilize to offer a technical solution (platform, application, etc.) to 6 associations that act for the Sustainable Development Goals.

A hackathon serving the general interest

microDON in partnership with the EEMI (European School of Internet Professions founded by Jacques-Antoine Granjon, Xavier Niel and Marc Simoncini) are organizing for the third time a "HACKADON" from September 13 to 16 at the Palais Brongniart.

+120 EMMI students show solidarity with 6 associations!

Following a call for projects, microDON and EEMI selected 6 projects with a positive impact in line with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Each association will be followed by 4 to 5 student teams competing for 3 days so as to be able to offer several avenues of innovative solutions. 

  • With Association Against Tuberculosis and Endemic Diseases (ACTUME) the challenge is to find a technical solution to optimize the daily management of the Tékane community pharmacy in Mauritania and thus support as many patients as possible.
  • With Electricians Without Borders it will be a matter of finding a solution capable of helping with the remote monitoring and impact assessment of its “Cafés Lumière”: multi-service energy platforms for rural populations forgotten about electrification strategies.
  • With Smart program  the challenge is to strengthen the digital advice tools of the Program to encourage families to take action on a daily basis and thus improve their nutritional practices. 
  • With Full Bowls the students will have to find a technical solution allowing the homeless and the most precarious to easily identify all the social services, associations, day center, emergency accommodation that accept and support their animals. 
  • With Earth & Humanism the objective is to enable the association to facilitate the monitoring and evaluation of the volunteer beneficiaries of the program “All VolonTerres” which is mainly aimed at young people who want to acquire the basic techniques of agroecology but who do not have the financial means to train.
  • Finally with For a Child's Smile, it will be a question of finding a solution to dematerialize and facilitate the promises of sponsorship during event operations. To finance its social missions, Pour un Sourire d'Enfant relies on the sponsorship of 8,500 committed donors over the long term.

Challenge of 24 teams divided by 5 to 6 students

Today again, we need your precious support in order to help the child El Housseïne NAH, a 2-year-old Mauritanian.

… Rediscover the use of my hands!

NAH El Housseine, a 2-year-old child from Mauritania, has a severe malformation of both hands.

This child's situation is getting worse day by day because of the weight of the limbs which makes walking impossible with a fall and risk of trauma.

We are looking for an evacuation to a specialized center in France for better care.
