ACTUME will of course continue to provide support, but this handover now allows us to go further in extending and supporting caravans with a community pharmacy project in Tékane.

The first stone has just been laid thanks to local efforts and goodwill. It was a very special moment for ACTUME, which has been working on this project for over a year.

Its construction will mainly use local resources. It will also have an ecological dimension for water resources, natural air conditioning and even construction materials. Indeed, an engineering firm and a craftsman have already committed themselves to ACTUME to manufacture an innovative structure, more insulating, lighter and less expensive. The innovative technique of this new material will use local resources and will benefit the entire community of Tékane.
