In cooperation with Caritas Rwanda, Caritas Slovenia organized the development project "More efficient use of resources for sustainable survival in Karongi District, Rwanda" from 2018 to 2020. The initiative was co-financed by the Slovenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, cargo-partner in Slovenia also supported the good cause.
The project involves 600 families in need who are mainly living from agriculture. The aim of the charity is to educate people living in the Karongi District and provide them with the necessary equipment for sustainable farming methods and other economic activities with a long-term income.
Our Slovenian colleagues helped in the transportation of five machines for producing sustainable compressed earth bricks from Slovenia to the Rwandan towns Mutun and Gashari. After receiving the machines, the involved families were thoroughly trained by Caritas Rwanda employees on using the equipment. cargo-partner was happy to support this important initiative which strengthens sustainable regional development and craftsmanship.
