  • Every night Moussa Kamara works at his bakery preparing hundreds of loaves but at sunrise, instead of going home to sleep, he now starts a second back-breaking job - hoeing the earth and tending newly sown seeds in a specially designed circular garden. He is part of a project that aims to create hundreds of such gardens - known as 'Tolou Keur' in Senegal's Wolof language - that organisers hope will boost food security, reduce regional desertification and engage thousands of community workers.

A migrant’s odyssey from boat to Covid nursing job in Spain

The six migrants listen attentively to Mbaye Babacar Diouf, whose own journey across the Atlantic to a job nursing Covid-19 patients in Spain and giving back to the community through his own nonprofit would seem to scream success.
Mbaye Babacar Diouf, right, walks by a special coronavirus checkpoint, at Basurto hospital, in Bilbao, northern Spain, Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2020. Mbaye Babacar Diouf's life as a migrant in Europe took a turn for the better when he was adopted in Spain at the age of 28. That enabled him to pay his debts to human traffickers, study nursing and find a job at a Spanish hospital. Now he's giving back to the community. In a Bilbao hospital he cares for COVID-19 patients.(AP)
