Claudine Mukamunana is now a model farmer for her surrounding community 2Claudine Mukamunana is a Community Based Volunteer in charge of the farmer field school in Rwaniro sector, Huye district. DUHAMIC ADRI enrolled her into the USAID Twiyubake program.

In front of her house near the main road she has built a model kitchen garden. Local authorities who frequently pass by the garden, mobilized the community to come to learn from her how to build and plant a kitchen garden. “Even community health workers came with parents and their malnourished children to learn from me”, explained Claudine.

Thanks to the Bio-Intensive Agriculture Techniques and use of organic manure she was able to double the yield of the vegetables on her field next to her house. Now she is selling vegetables which allow her to pay school fees for her children in addition to providing her family with a balanced diet.

She thanks USAID Twiyubake and DUHAMIC-ADRI for the training she received and is proud to be a model farmer for her surrounding community.
