The KASANA adventure
During a trip about ten years ago, Augustin and François-Xavier fell in love with Uganda. Eager to have a positive impact and to support the local economy, they founded the association “The Refugee Next Door” which includes a nursery, a school and a training centre to support local agricultural projects.
In 2014, they decided to embark on the KASANA adventure with the aim of helping farmers by training them in solar drying techniques but also to valorise the surplus of exotic fruits. Today, KASANA is developing agricultural value chains for dried fruit and vanilla. Its partners are mainly based in Burkina Faso and Uganda.
