Community Garden

Our longtime partner Bufcoffee built the Umumvumu Kindergarten in the community of Nyarusiza, Rwanda to provide education to the children of the farmers and community members in the area. Using a 2020 Seeds grant, Bufcoffee aims to increase food security by constructing a community garden.

The food grown will be used to provide meals at the school as well as for distribution to the nearby community. Along with training on garden maintenance and composting, the goal is to help families increase the quality and yields of their home gardens – often a major food source for producers in the region.
