Kinigi Executive Secretary Visits Sabyinyo Village Kitchen Gardens

One of Wilderness Rwanda’s most recent “Empower” initiatives, as part of its core Impact strategy, are the Wilderness Sabyinyo-supported village kitchen gardens established in the Kinigi Sector of Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park area. The gardens are proving a great success, and recently hosted an important visitor.

Through the kind donations of guests visiting Wilderness Sabyinyo, we have been able to support 26 needy households with vegetable- or kitchen gardens. A kitchen garden, known as akarima k’igikoni in Kinyarwanda, is one of the country’s home-grown solutions to preventing malnutrition and stunted growth. In Rwanda, the term is quite common, because many households have discovered the amazing output you can get from a well-managed vegetable garden. The project is running in Kanyampereri and Rebero villages in the Kinigi Sector.

A few weeks ago, the project was visited by Landuard, the Executive Secretary of the Kinigi Sector. Landouard was shown around the gardens, by the residents of the community, and by our own Wilderness Sabyinyo employee, Leonard.

The visit to Kanyampereri Village showcased the tangible results of Wilderness’ efforts in supporting needy families and addressing malnutrition. On arrival, it was evident that the village was bustling with activity, as community members were actively engaged in harvesting various types of vegetables. This was a great display of Wilderness’ efforts to empower the local community and address malnutrition.

The Executive Secretary was impressed by the positive outcomes, and the residents thanked Wilderness for their support.

We hope to further expand this project in the area in the upcoming year and to explore even more opportunities.
