Dear Project Supporters, 

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generosity in supporting our initiative to empower women.

During this quarter the participants showed great interest in increasing their knowledge and skills as part of this project, as evidenced by their active participation in trainings and project meetings, as well as their eagerness to serve as promoters. Additionally, according to project staff, participating families indicate they are more aware of food security issues in their communities and have expressed a strong social commitment to this project and growing vegetables. 

We welcome your continued support in making a difference in the lives of more women.  We encourage you to donate monthly here. Even a few dollars a month will go a long way. Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at aspirerwanda@gmail.com or rshyaka@aspirerwanda.org

With great appreciation,

Aspire Rwanda Team

Dear Project Supporters, 

We are very happy to share with you the speak out of one beneficiary

 “We are very grateful for the support and I am so happy I was opportune to be among the first women to be supported with a piggery farm. The pig is growing up well and this has greatly helped me especially in the cultivation of other food stuff like Maize and vegetables. As I get to use the waste from the farm in the cultivation of the food stuff. At first, I had to buy these waste (compost) from the market to use on my farm which was too expensive. Most at times, I resolve in using other inorganic fertilizers that usually end up as a challenge to my health and that of my family. So far I have harvested, ate and sold vegetables like never before. I am really grateful for this project and I’m waiting patiently for the time we could start feeding on the pigs”.

We hope we will be able to set up other livestock farms for some other women base on the funds we will receive.

 We welcome your continued support in making a difference in the lives of more women.  We encourage you to donate monthly here. Even a few dollars a month will go a long way. Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.

Dear partner,

Thank you very much for your continued support towards this sustainable project. Another group of women have been received the pigs. You see and feel the excitement of putting a smile on ones’ face with the little you do. The appreciation and joy of the women is so remarkable, that it will be unfair if we don’t share it with all the amazing GlobalGiving family.

Visiting the women on June 10, 2020, we were very happy to listen to the women’s testimonies on the success of the project. One woman was quick to remark that “It beat her imagination to see that few months back she thought it was a difficult activity but today she is caring for the pigs without any difficulty and the pig is growing so well”.

The women were trained on pig feeding, pig’s medical care and nutrition.  Follow up shall occur at the end of August 2020 to ascertain the pig’s weight and determine a market. The women are maintaining the pigs’ health up to the project standard with no recorded illnesses.

Due to the high demand, new women are requesting assistance from this project. Furthermore, the current project is unable to satisfy the needs of villagers within the current location.  We wish to touch additional women but the resources are limited. We will like to appeal for more support to ensure a prosperous future for the Women in Gikomero.  

Thank you and Blessings unto you

Hello everyone,

Thank you for your generosity towards this project and our projects on GlobalGiving.

Women beneficiaries have been able supplied pigs and to learn pig raising and bookkeping.

The training focused also on fight against malnutrition by providing sustainable and affordable alternative sources of protein to families in these communities, Pig management training, Food–feed crops cultivated for feeding , treating a pig.

You are not only impacting women in this project, but also impacting the whole community when you give to this piggery project. Your monthly giving counts a lot.

We have many women waiting but means are really limited. It is for this reason that we are appealing for more donations to enable us to assist the remaining women.

Thank you very much for your support.

We are proud to report first concrete, tangible results of women empowerment

A big thank you to all our donors and supporters who have so generously continued to support our efforts to help poor and low-income farmers to earn more and feed their families

Please continue to give your support generously

Progress till date:

 We have identified 100 farmers and the participants are equipped with tools to respond and address issues such as SGBV, women, children and as well as understand reproductive health, the prevention of common infectious diseases, and good nutrition to improve their family’s health. As our beneficiaries will respond to these issues, they will change their lives and the lives of those around them fostering healthier and more peaceful families and ultimately communities.

 How did we achieve this? 

-We used participatory method in which participants created the opportunity of reciprocity communication between trainers and trainees.

-We used brain storming strategy for finding solutions through means of stimulating ideas from participants.

-We created small groups of participants then met and contributed to any suggestion or idea that strikes them.                                                                                                                                                                                                          

-Participants were sensitizing on having Children legally registered as well as being legal married.

On-going efforts 

With your generous support we will continued to enroll and support more beneficiaries to improve farmers’ livelihoods.
