PRESERVATION OF MANGOES AND OTHER FRUITS BY DRYING

The women of the village of Dakhar Mbaaye have joined forces to form the economic interest group (GIE) Bokh Khalat in order to better organize the cultivation and sale of fruits and vegetables. In recent years both mango and papaya plants have been planted and are now coming into fruition. In order to make the mangoes last longer, the women need a way to preserve them. By installing a tunnel dryer, you can let the sun dry the fruits and thus preserve them. The dried fruits can be sold on both the Senegalese and European markets and help women earn an income and enable their children to go to school.

REDUCING CHILD MALNUTRITION IN COMMUNITY KINDERGARTENS

The main aim of our project is to contribute to the nutritional status of the children educated in the ASB community after-school care centers. The ASB operates municipal daycare centers in the above-mentioned provinces, where children from poor and vulnerable families are cared for. Thanks to the efforts of the Boy Scouts, these children eat at school, but sometimes their diet is not balanced, which leads to diseases such as malnutrition. To achieve this, the project will strengthen the skills of childcare center managers in the areas of food security, nutrition and advocacy, establish nine community vegetable gardens and hold a competition to support five good initiatives in the areas of food security, nutrition and advocacy.

CONSTRUCTION OF HIGH-EFFICIENT COOKERS FOR NEEDY FAMILIES IN THE CITY OF RUMONGE

This project distributes high-efficiency stoves to needy families with children at La Espero kindergarten and the surrounding community made up of Rumonge returnees. The stoves have improved combustion, reducing air pollution in homes and its negative health effects. The stoves also require less firewood, which protects forests, makes the tedious work of collecting wood easier and reduces CO₂ emissions.
Many of the families use inefficient cooking systems. These traditional cooking systems consume a large amount of fuel and produce a lot of smoke, which can lead to harmful effects on the health of children and women.

FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR THE EMPOWERMENT OF 60 BURUNDI WOMEN, VICTIMS OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING

These girls and women have completed secondary school. It will be easy for you to learn the profession quickly using the preferred method of learning by doing.

PEACEBUILDING THROUGH INTRODUCING YOUTH TO POSITIVE CULTURAL VALUES IN BURUNDI

The aim of the project is to create social peace through the restoration of positive cultural values, as certain values ​​such as respect for life, humanity, abhorrence of evil, patriotism, etc. have helped the people of Burundi to live in harmony, but have lost their meaning due to cultural developments throughout history and the conflict situations that Burundi has experienced for over 20 years. The main victim of this decline in positive values ​​is the youth, caught between despair about the future and the attempt to be led down paths with uncertain outcomes. Most of them are capable of embarking on dubious paths at any cost.
