Project Report | Feb 21, 2017
2016 in Review

Mavuno just wrapped up a week long staff retreat reflecting on 2016 and looking ahead to 2017. 2016 was a big year for Mavuno; we expanded from 3 villages with 206 households to 10 villages with 888 households. During the year community members harvested 42 hectares of land, generating 177,005 kg of crops!  That’s equal to the weight of nearly 30 elephants! These crops generated $32,900 for families to use for healthcare, school fees, housing improvements, business development, and savings for the future. Over 400 rabbits were born through our livestock program, further contributing to household income. The economic impact has been significant, but the social impact has been even greater. We have seen families strengthened and communities come together. Children are healthier and happier, parents have hope in the future, and individuals believe in their ability to produce change.  This is just the beginning; we look forward to partnering with you as we continue to empower local leaders to end extreme poverty in eastern Congo. From all of us at Mavuno, thank you for making 2016 a success!  We couldn’t do it without you!
