Stand Up Women
Project ‘Stand Up Women!’ is an agricultural project which is run by ‘ASDIG’ and provides an income-generating opportunity for 300 women in Kalehe, on the western shores of Lake Kivu, to farm cassava, ground nuts, pigs, goats and chickens. Hoes, spades, rakes and machetes are all provided – at a cost. A local agricultural specialist supports the project (voluntarily). Again, a project manager has been recruited. A micro-finance project has recently been started up.
