Anne-Marie commented on Dried vegetables for improved livelihoods in Rwanda

You can find the answers to the questions attached to the contribution. Thank you!

We implement a Nutrition Education and Counselling project in the 6 refugee camps in Rwanda, in Gatsibo, Gicumbi, Karongi, Kirehe, Nyamagabe and Gisagara districts. The first phase of our project is planned to be implemented in Gihembe camp (Byumba town). I would be interested to visit your office and discuss further collaboration, if you are also interested.

Anne-Marie commented on Dried vegetables for improved livelihoods in Rwanda

Thank you for your comment.
Our idea at first was mainly targeting the community as costumers because our aim as an organization is to reduce food insecurity among both refugees and host-community members. By transforming high-nutritious food into dried product that can be kept during six months will facilitate the access to those products at a low cost during the hunger season. 

After our beneficiary feedback, we decided to target many types of costumers for our products in order to diversify the sources of incomes for the cooperatives. We also saw, like you say, that there are some companies that can work with us. We are actually working on building different partnerships with companies in Kigali. Do you have some inputs about some companies that could be interested?
