It's one of the parts of the touching story of Djagri became conductor of cattle herd on the instruction of his father.
Aged fifteen years, the young boy still has the nostalgia of the best moments he left there almost two years ago.
Born in Agbassa, prefecture Doufelgou in northern Togo where he grew up, Djagri and his family found themselves currently in the canton of Nandouta (Dankpen prefecture) always in the northern part of the country.
They are 4 children for their parents. The sister of Djagri has already joined the matrimonial home; Djagri and his younger brother currently lead the bulls of their dad.
The boy doesn't even know if their parents have established their identity or not; all what is sure is that it family never talked or made use. Nevertheless, he is doing well in French-speaking and really shows his love for the school. Agridigitale met him!
May Djagri back to school one day?
"I think most anyone worth talking about, I'm not sure my dad to reconsider its decision. Otherwise I liked the school, if opportunity permitted, and that it is not too late, I will continue the studies,"said Djagri head down with a great desolation.
The history of Djagri well whether touching is not yet the worst case. Elsewhere, children even did not walk to school and are sent directly to the agricultural or pastoral learning on the job.
As a result, many talents are wasted, professionalization of the agricultural sector undermined efforts, and conflicts between herders and farmers maintained.
The PREPP has put an end to illiteracy in pastoral areas aware of the many problems and obstacles that are born from the low tuition and the high rate of illiteracy in pastoral communities, the regional education program of pastoralists in border areas (PREPP) has been formulated and implemented in cross-border areas of West and Central Africa, in all 5 altogether.
Several actors and placed under the coordination of the Association for the promotion of breeding in the Sahel and in Savannah (APESS) based in Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso, there is a program that takes into account the realities of pastoral communities.
Throughout the PREPP, the countries concerned, hear, serve an offer of education and training to mobile pastoral communities.
As a result, it is expected a reduction of conflicts between mobile pastoralists and sedentary farmers, taking into account the fundamental needs of farmers in sectoral development policies and mitigation of the the vulnerability of communities to the extremist drifts.
