The enterprises set up under SEDAB are diverse, from herbal medicine production to natural building, snake venom extraction, tailoring, and more - but what they have in common is care for the environment and the people living there. A {presentation} at Unity Pavilion led by Alain and Joss described the history, vision, and impact of the project.

74 Mb

The presentation included short films about three of the SEDAB projects: Wellpaper, snake venom extraction, and natural beauty care. We are encouraged to contact the SEDAB team with any ideas for further enterprises, especially for village women.
