Babwerata Is One Of Our Best In Agriculture

By Cassandra Wilson | Communications Manager

Babwerata With One Of Her Goats
Babwerata With One Of Her Goats

Babwerata is an 80 year old grandmother caring for three grandchildren in Rubanda district. Babwerata began caring for her grandchildren after the unfortunate passing of her son who died of an unknown disease and the disappearance of their mother. She is very hard working and has invested in goat rearing and farming using the goat manure to help grow vegetables and bananas around her home.

There are 4,357 grandmothers located in the Rubanda district who are organized into 52 groups. Of over 4,300 Rubanda grandmothers, Babwerata is among the best performing grandmothers in agriculture. She attributes her success to the savings opportunities in her grandmother group; she managed to buy an older goat that has given birth to four goat kids. Babwerata says she feels safe and doesn’t fear facing any health challenges or fear failure of having resources for medication if she were to get sick.

Babwerata looks vibrant, healthy, and is very confident in what she does with agriculture. She very much appreciates the vocational training from Nyaka that has guided her so much. Her wish is to get more funds for expansion of her goat rearing project and become even more economically strong.
