I was a forestry / environmental education volunteer in a little (150-200 people)Fulani village called Komboko. I lived in a small house made of mud bricks. No electricity, running water, TV. The villagers were mostly herders and spoke only their local language, Fulfulde (no French).
I was trained to do a variety of forestry and conservation related activities such as:
- build mud stoves (to conserve fuel wood)
- graft fruit trees
- grow tree nurseries and plant the trees
- combat soil erosion
- grow live fencing
In the end my most satisfying job was illustrating training manuals for other volunteers to use as visual aids when working on their own projects. I also enjoyed visiting Tubani So, the Peace Corps training village and talking with the new trainees and preparing them for life in their villages.
