Where we are working

Empowering Coffee Communities | October 2021 - September 2024

This project is improving the gender equality and family health, food security, and livelihoods of coffee-growing communities in Bugesera and Nyaruguru districts. Training in gender equality is giving women the confidence and opportunity to take up leadership positions, and influence positive change at a local level.

Inka Nziza Zikamwa | July 2021 - June 2024

This project supported by Jersey Overseas Aid in the Rulindo, Kayonza, Rwamagana, Ngoma, Nyanza, Nyaruguru and Bugesera districts is working with 12,296 households to improve dairy cow management and increase milk production. Jersey cows generally consume less food and water per litre of milk produced, making them ideal for Rwandan smallholders. Milk collection points and centres being established in communities are enabling people to sell their surplus milk produce and improve their livelihoods.

Orora Neza | October 2021 - September 2024

Nyamagabe is one of the hungriest and most food-insecure districts in Rwanda, where farmers have been struggling to feed their livestock enough good-quality fodder. With funding from AGFUND, Ripple Effect Rwanda is improving animal nutrition by establishing local fodder multiplication sites supplying fodder seeds and planting materials. Quality milk production is increasing, and farmers are also developing their access to markets, which is improving livelihoods and nutrition security.

Rwamagana Widows Empowerment | September 2021 - August 2022

This project, funded by Bothar, is improving nutrition by increasing skills in sustainable agriculture techniques which improve soil fertility and manage pests. Families are also developing their skills in financial management and marketing through the establishment of village saving and loan schemes and income-generating projects.
