Yanou a le palu (Yanou has malaria) – Crowdfunding
With the support of the Turing Foundation (NL), IDAY has launched a vast school garden programme in Cameroon with nutritious and medicinal plants, including Artemisia annua.
In order to raise awareness of the plant among children and their families, IDAY asked a Cameroonian author-illustrator, Vincent Nomo, to create a children’s book to be published in Cameroon by the Akoma Mba publishing house.
That’s how “Yanou a le palu” came into being !
IDAY has launched a crowdfunding on the platform Ulule and thanks to you we have reach a first step, we have collected 2500€ to print 2500 books.
You can send your donations to:
IBAN BE93 5230 8026 6767
What is the objective?
After 6 months of research and meetings with scientists and users of the plant, Yanou a le palu was born.
Aimed at children but also at teachers and parents, this book covers various topics :
✅ the importance of diagnosis by the health centre
✅ understand what the plant is used for, what are its virtues?
✅ how to grow it?
✅ how to use it and at what dose?
With the help of practitioners and scientific advisors, including Dr. Rosine Chougouo, a specialist in Artemisia and a researcher at the University of Mountains in Yaoundé, Vincent Nomo has also produced an educational leaflet that includes everything you need to know about the plant. Many thanks to Marie Wabbes who initiated this project.
Where will it be distributed?
First in Cameroon as part of an ongoing school garden project and then in Senegal, Guinea, Benin, Togo, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, DRC and Burundi.
