Tamba’s gardens are awash in onions
Mar 20, 2019

From Sinthian to Fass to Dialico, the women’s collectives have begun harvesting onions, a key crop for both consumption and sale. The yield is plentiful this year.

“The women are very happy,” said Moussa Sene, Thread’s general manager. “In Sinthian, they have harvested over 1000 kilograms already,” he added. Because onions feature in so many Senegalese dishes, they are in wide demand, and the collectives will have good earnings from this year’s crop. They will keep a portion for their families, too, ensuring that as the dry season progresses, their larders are well-stocked.
