Independence of the Batwa families in the GISURU area through the cultivation of oyster mushrooms

The project to empower Batwa (Pygmy) families in Gisuru through the cultivation of edible oyster mushrooms aims to empower Batwa families who are marginalized in Burundi, have no land to cultivate and are therefore very poor. Oyster mushrooms are a crop that requires little space and is grown without soil. This solves the problem of lack of cultivation area and is also profitable. The project will provide employment to 18 households consisting of 86 members of Batwa families by setting up a farm to produce and sell oyster mushrooms. 6000 kg of substrates are needed to set up the farm. They will be trained in simplified accounting to facilitate the management of mushroom cultivation.
