Malnutrition remains a big challenge for many developing countries. Rwanda has show the political will to address this issue. Strategies were set to overcome this and all people and organizations are called upon to partake in those efforts.
In that framework, Tuvuge Twiyubaka Association has found kitchen gardens as a good way to assist a group of 13 former sex workers to fight malnutrition. Through the technology households without enough land for farming can afford to run this project.
In Nyamagabe district South Rwanda,beneficiaries are provided with technical support from a qualified agronomist and are quickly equipped with practical skills enabling them to perform the task on their own. In this way, beneficiary can easily grow vegetables like carrots, cabbages, green paper, etc.
This support has assured a good diet to the beneficiaries of Tuvuge Twiyubaka for themselves and their children as some of them are HIV positive which means that they need to be fed healthier. It has also helped them to economize their small portion f land and to use them to grow other crops like beans, irish potatoes, etc. In addition to this, it has improved the lives of the local community because the rest of the harvest is sold on the local market.
