239 Kč

The Gitega Hills washing station was constructed by a native pharmacist, Bernard Uwitije, in 2015 in the Nyamagabe District. Volcanoes provide nutritional soils blessing the whole area with verdant slopes. The station is supplied by around 1,200 farmers from Gitega, Karama, Nyanza and Ngara, being supervised by two field professionals helping them to implement the best agricultural practices throughout the year. Bernard Uwitije also offers some benefits to his partner farmers, such as health insurance, loans, organic fertilizer coming from the compost of coffee cherries and seeds for planting pineapples.
