KAYANZA/MUYINGA, February 12th (ABP) – The Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) Tubura Burundi organized, on Thursday February 8, 2024, a joint visit with the authorities of Muyinga province, to assess the past growing season and see the inventory of the maize fields of the farmers supervised by that NGO.
The fields visited are promising in terms of harvest and the growers have not hidden their pride in being members of that program.
“With the Tubura program, access to inputs and other agricultural products has become easier. This allowed us to increase our production and improve our living conditions. This season, I sowed 2 kg of maize and I hope to have more than a ton of dry maize kernels,” a certain Saidi Kwizera said with joy.
On the side of the Muyinga provincial administration, the governor’s chief of staff, Mrs. Ndaruhekere Denise, reiterated the province’s commitment to collaborate with active partners like Tubura in the agricultural sector. To that NGO, she also recommended extending its services to other districts to support a large number of farmers.
Those harvest visits will also continue in other districts in Muyinga province supported by the said NGO.
Note that similar trips were also made on Wednesday to the Gahombo and Muhanga communes of Kayanza province. This activity was honored with the presence of the chief of staff in the office of the governor.
Contacted on site, the farmers from those districts testified that they expect a large production of maize, sown during the 2024 growing season A.
For his part, the chief of staff in the office of the governor of Kayanza province, Mr. Vianney Ndikumana, praised the achievements and support of the aforementioned organization and asked other partners to follow suit.
