My name is Uwamahoro Sarah I live in Kanzenze District, Nyamabuye Village, in the Ntarama Sector. Are you also a member of the Twisungane Group? Yes, I am a member. I am married with 3 children. Sara, so what do you think of today’s activities? I am very happy Before this, the only way we could water our fields using watering cans which was very hard I am very happy, this is something I had been waiting for, for a long time. We are now going to be able to plant so much more. Everything we could not water manually. Now that we have irrigation equipment we are going to be able to farm all our land. What kinds of activities do you think you are going to pursue now that you have irrigation equipment? I can see that most of your land was not farmed due to the hot temperatures, even thought you live near a water source What we are going do now is plant Green peppers and Eggplants. Our tomatoes are almost ready for the market We have planted 6 more Acres, next time you come to visit us we will give you some free tomatoes. Thank you Sarah My name is Nsanzibere Jean DeLacroix I live in Kanzenze District, Nyamabuye Village, in the Ntarama Sector and I am a member of Twisungane We came here today to accept the assistance that we have been given. We are very happy and this is all truly amazing. We were spending so much energy trying to keep our crops from drying up. Now that we can irrigate out farms, we are going to expand all our activities. We are going to be able to go from 6 Acres to 12 or 18 Acres of farming. Before we could only grow 3 types of vegetables but We are now going to grow enough vegetables to feed our families and also have more to sell and lift ourselves out of poverty. For our group and as a Country, this will help us to continue the fight against poverty and improve our lives. My name is Masumbuko Jean Pierre I live in Kanzenze District, Nyamabuye Village, in the Ntarama Sector. Jean Pierre, what are your thoughts on today’s activities and how are going to use the new equipment? To be honest, I am overjoyed We had been struggling for so long but now our hard work will pay off and we can begin to create wealth. Before, when we had a crop that took 3 months to grow For each one of those days we would be out watering our crop all day to avoid losing it In the morning and in the evening Sometimes even that much would not be enough Even that wasn’t always enough because we still lost a lot of plants because they did not get enough water But today, we are overjoyed. We are very happy about getting this new equipment For example you can see all these plans which had already died And over there, those are very weak But now we are happy and we can celebrate We are going to water this area and revive all our tomatoes We will revive some and plant new ones after that. We are very excited and can’t wait to see the outcome My name is Nyirandimubanzi Claudine I live in Kanzenze District, Nyamabuye Village, in the Ntarama Sector. This is one of our vegertable farms We have a few more of these farms nearby Work is difficult because we do not have all the tools we need We use hand tools Today, we are very happy and excited because this equipment will help us work without as much toil This is such a wonderful act, we are very grateful for everything you have done We don’t have to work as hard watering out plants by hand What do you hope to achieve in the next 5 to 6 months Now we are going to expand all our farming activities We are not going to run out of seeds again because During the dry season we used to run out of seed and stop farming. Now that we have water, we are going to be able to continue farming We are going to plant all the vegetables that we need to feed our community Thank you Claudine This is Ndayambaje Samuel, Leader of Twisungane Farming group. He is going to tell us how he feels about today’s activities Thank you very much If I could speak from the heart I would laugh all day long. I don’t know how to explain it. We have been waiting for this day for a long time From many people But God brought you to us I would like to thank you for everything you have done for us Everyone who is here, please give them a round of applause. Our hearts overflow As you said, I am the leader of this group We came together so we can support each other With ideas At first people thought we were silly but We found working together to be best for us. So we can help develop our community I would like to thank all our members for their comments and I thank you all again We are going to work hard You are here all the time You know that we like to work together and how hard we work The market that never had enough vegetables before is not going to have a surplus of produce Even though it’s the dry season, we are going to irrigate our farms and have an abundance This equipment looks incredible, I can’t believe it We are going to irrigate our farms and continue to farm and work hard. We are not going to have to stop farming Like they said, The watering was really wearing us down Even with all that work, as you can see, we were still losing a lot of our crops Thank you again, May God Bless you Please continue to work with us and support us I don’t have anything else to say besides Thank you, Thank you You know that we like to work together and how hard we work
