To address the challenge, Kabakoo – The House Of Wondering has launched the project “F² - Farafina Fíyɛnminɛ”***.
In the first step of the project, the group of wonderers dedicated to the project was able to raise the awareness for the issue among the local population in Bamako. They spent 16 days in May 2018 interviewing street vendors, motorcyclists, and passers-by about air quality. These interviews have revealed that air pollution indeed is an acute problem to most people in the area surveyed. For example, Abdoulaye, a street vendor near Bamako’s Africa Tower, has remarked that since he have started working there, he has had a running nose and an inflamed throat all year round. Based on the overall interviews results, Kabakoo set out to actually monitor the real level of air pollution in Bamako.
