Inganzo swamp area, Busasamana Sector, Nyanza District, Rwanda
Sylvestre Munyampara, chairman of Urumuri rw’abahinzi [The Farmer’s Light] Cooperative:
“This project is not yet one year old, but it has helped us to know our problems and to analyze them, and to submit them to the authorities, especially District authorities.
This was not possible for us before. The only person who used to address our problems was the sector agronomist, who usually assists us on how we cultivate.
But with [TI-Rwanda project partner] SDA-IRIBA, we are aware of our problems.
We analyze them and we can assess and see what we can solve ourselves, and what we can expect from the Government, and all information can now reach the District.”
