More than 70% of families in Burundi depend on agriculture to meet their nutritional and income needs. By teaching local farmers innovative and sustainable agriculture techniques, we help reduce malnutrition rates and increase revenues for families. Mushroom and vegetable production add diversity and micronutrients to family diets.
While attending an event in the community, the Commune Administrator took time to visit a mushroom shed of a BDS group participant. Mushrooms are readily grown in small, dark places and provide a good source of micronutrients essential for good health.
Impact Burundi wants to put a big effort in this community, and its goal in five years from is this community to turn and help other communities. Impact Burundi goal for people from this community is to become good stewards starting in their own families first, then in the community, in the region, and finally in the whole country of Burundi.
