We are striving to strengthen the technical and financial skillsets of vulnerable families living in the provinces of Bubanza and Cibitoke.

Actions

This objective is attained through:

  • Appointing points of contact for justice and peace, job creation, and fighting malnutrition.
  • Promoting food production and creating sources of revenue by strengthening family agriculture, integrating crop and fruit production, raising goats and cattle, and education about hygiene and nutrition.
  • Establishing and reinforcing farming co-ops, improving operations, and support of the fruits and vegetables value chain.

Target population:

We aim to support 3,500 vulnerable families living in the provinces of Bubanza and Cibitoke.
