Sarah’s dream is to utilize greenhouses to grow enough pesticide-free tomatoes to meet the growing demand, replacing imports with a local product.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Rwanda suffers from rising demand because there is a scarcity of foodstuffs in Rwanda. Further, we still import foodstuffs from neighboring countries.
How will this project solve this problem?
Using greenhouses to grow quality produce creates jobs for Rwanda’s farmers and gives a locally grown product to Rwanda’s people.
Potential Long Term Impact
My target is to have 6 greenhouses within the next 3 years so that I can produce more tomatoes to meet the demand on the market. I have a team of 3 gardeners and 3 agricultural specialists who have agreed to work for me once a week.
