CEFA's director Benoit Zangao just got back from his trip to Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso where he attended a 4 day ECHO Conference. He learned a lot from the many different sessions varying from learning how to create biogas from animal manures to the many benefits of the Moringa tree. He also finally got to meet some of the ECHO staff. In particular, pictured with Benoit is former missionary to the agroforestry program at Gamboula, Tim Watkins, who was happy to see Benoit in the flesh for the first time. Benoit not only learned quite a bit from the conference, but he made new friends, contacts where more new ideas and experiences can be exchanged. He spent a grueling two days and two nights with no sleep in his return home, but I am particularly glad to have him back!
