Oscarin's Story

By Melissa Edmiston | VP of Operations

 

2015 was a big year for Mavuno. We partnered with our first community, Bunzi, established our first cohort of community gardeners, and built the first market and the first-ever latrines in Bunzi. While there were several struggles and lessons learned, there were remarkable successes, none of which would have been possible without support from people like you. Our friend, Oscarin, can tell you better how Mavuno is empowering leaders to end extreme poverty in eastern Congo. Watch Oscarin’s story in the video below.

2015 was just the beginning. As we start 2016, we are excited about the opportunities. Based on the lessons learned from Bunzi, we have expanded to reach an additional 130 households in three new villages. We recently launched a livestock program, allowing families to further support their nutrition and support household income. We are also in the process of helping families enroll in a healthcare mutuality to eliminate some of the burden associated with devastating healthcare costs, and we’re seeing more children go to school, creating a new generation of leaders for eastern Congo!

 

Thanks for joining us - Together, we can.
