Nyabihu District helping people to develop poultry and Bee keeping
As a means of promoting work that generates profits among the people other than crop husbandry, the Rwandan Environment Management Authority intends to develop poultry and bee keeping among the people that evacuated Gishwati wilderness.
About 1000 hens will be given to residents of 2 villages of Bikingi and Mukamira as means of poverty eradication. People who are settled in these villages from Gishwati wilderness will also be promoted through bee keeping projects as well.
According to Jean de Dieu Nabimana who works REMA in Nyabihu district says these projects will be realized before the end of this year. This will make people put attention to profitable projects other than crop farming and lead them to development.
These projects will make people who evacuated Gishwati area realize the importance of the area and their value to the Rwandan government. This will be done while Gishwati area is being environmentally renovated.”
Gishwati area in Nyabihu district has been divided into 3 parts including the crop farming area with terraces already done, the animal farming area with cattle farms in place and the wilderness area with more forestry being grown.
Gishwati area is being rehabilitated and protected to make it more productive as anticipated while evacuating people that lived in this area.
