Sustainable Economic Agricultural Development

The Scottish Government is funding Tearfund to work with communities in the Southern Province of Rwanda until 2022.

The Scottish Government is funding Tearfund and its partners to work with communities in the Southern Province of Rwanda until 2022 to support them to improve their agricultural productivity and to help them improve the value of what they get from sales of their produce. It has also encouraged community members to participate in self help groups which should enable them to increase their access to savings and loans as well as to work together to develop their communities.

The project started in October 2017 and in the first 18 months alone, 838 self help groups have been established and trained with almost 15,000 participants, the majority of whom are women. It hopes to build on the work of a previous successful project in the country to improve the lives of 30,000 people.

Drocella is a local woman who has benefited from this project.
