The Tandana Foundation collaborates with communities in Mali’s Bandiagara District on initiatives that address community priorities. In late 2020, the AllPeopleBeHappy foundation awarded a Project Grant of $9,477 to the Tandana Foundation for the creation of two school gardens, at the secondary school of Ondogou and the primary school of Saredina, Mali. These gardens permit students to earn income with which they can purchase school and first aid supplies, enrich educational experience, and provide nutrition to the students. The Tandana Foundation help the students elected management committees to lead their garden efforts, train these committees along with teachers and parent representatives, install fences to protect the gardens from livestock, and purchase seeds, fruit tree seedlings, and tools to get the gardens started.
