Empowerment Through Coops in Kigutu

“Thank you for helping us to open our minds and see that great things are possible.” - Lyduine Ntakiyiruta, VHW Cooperative Member

"The cooperatives organized by VHW have improved the relationships between our neighbors and taught us how to care about one another. VHW also provided us with livestock which helped us to get manure, generate an income, and improve our families' livelihood. Each coop member has his own livestock thanks to Village Health Works and is trained on how to treat and manage animals. Training in agricultural and diet skills are also very helpful for us to know what food is appropriate for each person.

We are becoming very empowered by this organization. Knowledge is the thing which I owe the most to VHW. Thank you for helping us to open our minds and see that things are possible. We can dream with Village Health Works" - Lyduine.
