History of Africare in Mauritania:
Africare has supported several assistance projects in Mauritania. The first was emergency relief in the early 1970s, when Mauritania — and the rest of Sahelian West Africa — was in the midst of a severe, six-year drought. The second project, begun in 1981, helped the people of the drought-prone Gouraye sector to increase agricultural production through improved irrigation and farmer training. A third, smaller project focused on vegetable production in the village of Aghlembit.
