Community development focused
Ikirezi partners with individuals, associations and cooperatives of rural local farmers.
Widows and adult orphans comprise 60% of current members, as Ikirezi is dedicated to working in partnership with Rwanda’s poorest and most vulnerable populations.
In addition to our commitment to maximize farmers’ profits, Ikirezi is devoted to improving farmers’ social livelihoods and empowering them to transform their communities.
We believe in fostering association/cooperative autonomy and self-sufficiency, while providing various trainings such as agribusiness management and HIV/AIDS prevention and care. The cooperative farming structure is also a valuable social arrangement for fostering reconciliation, unity, and relationships among farmers.
