ABOUT US

 

It is active in the Great Lakes region between Congo DRC and Rwanda, which in recent decades has been the scene of dramatic conflicts that have led to a tragic deterioration in the living conditions of the population.



Since 2004 we have been helping to grow Nyamyumba Village, Nyaruguru District, Southern Province, Rwanda with an Integrated Development Project.

MISSION STATEMENT

The strength and special feature that unites all our projects is the optimisation of social capital and the valorisation of the human resources present in the village.

Nothing extraneous is imposed in the daily simplicity of life of the inhabitants of our communities, precisely so as not to create any new needs.

Development, if sustainable, must not create any kind of extraneous dependence, but must focus on maximising the resources already present, i.e. social and human capital, the only true and inexhaustible strength of any rural reality.
