SUFI - IMALI & AHEZA

Objective

 

To improve the living standard of 1,000 vulnerable beneficiaries, particularly women and youth-headed households grouped in cooperatives, by training them in tomato and mushroom growing and greenhouse management.

 

Background

Widows and youth who survived the genocide continue to face considerable odds socially, psychologically and economically. They often struggle to rebuild their lives with insufficient support mechanisms.

Launched in 2007 with initial funding from UN Women, SUFI aimed to improve the lives of widows and child-headed households through psycho-social support and income-generating activities.

In 2010, with support from UN Women and the Republic of South Korea, Imbuto Foundation started to provide training in agricultural techniques.

A partnership with the National Agriculture and Export Development Board facilitated tomato-growing training to beneficiaries. Imbuto also liaised with the Rwanda Agriculture Board and Agriculture Technology Demonstration Centre supported by the Republic of China, to support mushroom-growing training.

Today, support to beneficiaries consists to a great extent of seed funding, cooperatives and greenhouse management, and understanding of market supply chains.
