STRIVE FOUNDATION RWANDA is one of
RWANDA’s leading local NGO, providing emergency
relief and development assistance to the needy
throughout the country. One of their many projects in
South and Western Rwanda are aimed at improving
women’s economic empowerment and promote the
economic advancement of women by increasing their
incomes and access to credit and savings facilities.
Like the names goes ‘AMOHORO ‘ which
means Peace in Kinyarwanda, these hardworking
women have been so constructive towards their
community through fishing farming and vegetable growing.
Having started at alower pase and empowered by Strive
foundation Rwanda from 2017 with a 20 memebrs group,
it hasnt been an easy journey through because it aslo
included losing some members due to the lack of patience
and sometimes greed and those who have patiently worked
hand in hand with us have witnessed the fruits of success today.
As the saying goes, “experience creates perfectness”,
this has made Strive Foundation Rwanda to define
mul-nutrition using its own experience and perfection
at the field work.
Malnutrition means more than starving or not having
enough food to eat. Scant intake of proteins (necessary
to keep the body healthy and build muscle), calories
(a measure of energy the body needs), iron (for proper
blood cell function), and other nutrients make up
different types of malnutrition.
Since 2003, Strive Foundation Rwanda programs have been
slowly rolled in Rwanda. People talk of AIDS in Africa,
but Africa is a diverse continent, and Strive Foundation
Rwanda has been attempting to tackle AIDS in different
ways of which majority include World Aids Campaigns (WAD),
counselling and Testing services and linking the HIV victims
to the nearest health centers in their respective Districts
like Kayonza, Ngoma , Kirehe, Bugesera and Nyabihu because
the above areas where placed in our hands.
On a field voyage, the HHN volunteering team assisted our
beneficiaries to plough vast parcels using the traditional
tools/local hoes assisted by the field officers.
It’s really an excessive and interesting activity that also
our beneficiaries fell so embraced and daring to maintain
the active spirit.
Along with preserving local knowledge, some scientists believe
that rural and agricultural landscapes, if properly designed
and managed, can help preserve a significant number of plant
and animal species.
At Strive Foundation Rwanda, we describe Technical
Education as a structured system aimed at providing
recipients with the necessary knowledge and skills
to continue their studies at tertiary education level
or to exercise a profession in order to be integrated
into the labor market. Technical Education, on the other
hand puts more emphasis on theoretical education.
Giving back to your community is prized in itself,
but helping others also offers many welfares.
For example, it can help you learn more about yourself
and even put you on a path to your future career.
Over the years, our vulnerable work has
been immensely satisfying.
It exposes us to various vulnerable people
we wouldn’t easily meet.
Rwanda’s districts of Nyamasheke and Rusizi
have greatly witnessed this mechanism by
receiving a better feedback from our recent
midterm review when CHH
project was reached by Strive Foundation
Rwanda technical staffthat included the
Executive Director Mr. Muramira Bernard.
