Widows Women beneficiaries of Katsiru Centre
Through August 18 to August 21, 2014, the IHUDAF Chairman of the Board of Directors from Kinshasa, Fidele Kaboyi Munyakazi conducted a trip mission in Katsiru area, community of Bwito, Rutshuru Territory, North-Kivu Province. Accompanied by the IHUDAF Executive Secretary, Boniface Nkera Rutebuka, they have been able to launch agricultural activities through the corn pilot project on an area of 5 hectares. The project aims to help and empower 115 widows women and 35 young single mothers.
Once arrived in Katsiru, the Chairman of the Board of Directors has held an important awareness session with the Nyanzale Antenna leaders who oversee agricultural activities throughout the Bwito community and Government local civil and military authorities.
After the meeting, accompanied by beneficiaries (the first group of 50 people) and the Nyanzale team supervision, the Chairman of the Board of Directors and the Executive Secretary attended the measurement of the leased land carried out by a specialist, a designated agronomist on August 19, 2014 at 2kms far away from Katsiru Centre.
According to the specialist agronomist and the beneficiaries, the field is of good quality and is located in a more secure place; an expression of joy and hope for the beginning of new life for them after 20 years of destructive and deadly war.
The Chairman of the Board of Directors has also identified and paid the place where will be built the IHUDAF Katsiru Office and the secure storage of corn products.
Finally, the IHUDAF Chairman of the Board of Directors sent a thankful message to the people involved in this project and launched an invitation to participate actively fully in activities related to this project. The success and improvement of your daily life only depend on your determination to get involved.
