On March 27th 2013, ‘Ibyiringiro’ project in Bugesera district held an event to evaluate their activities towards vulnerable people living with HIV/AIDS.

Workers of World Vision and Catholic Relief Services that implement Ibyiringiro project activities visited beneficiaries who have improved their standards of living in Mareba sector.

Vicentie Mukangenzi, a resident of Rango cell narrates she invested in vegetable growing on a small piece of land but the yields were great.

“Where there is a will, there is a way,” she adds.

Though Ibyiringiro project has helped many residents wave good bye to poverty, it will end its activities in July 2013.

Appolinarie Bamurange, in charge of gender and family promotion in Bugesera district asserts that though the project is closing work in July 2013, the teachings given will still be used by many residents.

“Their activities must be valued by residents and take them as examples in their formed associations,” she denotes.

During the evaluation event, 58 exemplary residents were given water storage containers as a way of thanking and encouraging them to develop.

For the past 5 years, Ibyiringiro project funded by USAID has helped poor people including those living with HIV/AIDS to form cooperatives, credit and saving schemes and donating to them livestock with the aim of improving nutrition for better health.
