You might remember Josephine Niyonsenga’s smiling family from a prior blog post. Our Board Member, Jean Nicholson went to visit the Ingambo Ikingira Ubukene co-op in the Bugesera District of Rwanda, and Josephine was kind enough to invite her to visit her home.
Josephine is an original member of the cooperative, and has stuck with it through thick and thin. There was a time where it seemed as if no progress would be made, however she expresses hope now that Africa Development Promise has started working with the co-op. She sees that we have been able to provide resources that have led to tangible work such as the greenhouse and training center. She looks at the co-ops first official yield as an early sign of the progress and prosperity to come if she continues with the hard work the co-op has started.
