In Rwanda, about 61% of Rwandan soil, including in the south of Rwanda, is suitable for agriculture as the soils are fertile. The agriculture industry contributes about 31% to GDP, and it stands out as one of the most strategic sectors in Rwanda’ s development.
In the rural area, Hope of Family is keen on the beneficiaries' life sustainability by raising their agricultural produce. The organization distributed to beneficiaries’ domestic animals based on their preference and capacity to not only grow family-level income but also have manure to turn their kitchen gardens more fertile.
To minimize risks of sharing the identical living houses with these domestic animals, Hope of Family is now additionally setting up pig houses around family homes.
