Project Senegal

In 1994 as a commission for the Chamber of Crafts of Coblenz (HWK-Koblenz) a project for the promotion of Ceramics was accomplished in Senegal/West Africa.
The Chamber of Crafts of Coblenz maintains a partnership project with the umbrella organization of the handcraft association UNCM (Union Nationale de Chambres de Metiérs). UNCM has been campaigning for more independence of centralised state organisations.

According to UNCM there are 90,000 crafts enterprises in the small French speaking countries in the west coast of Africa.
