Several cows have been given under the support of FARG to the 1994 genocide against Tutsi survivors in Rugera, Jomba, Muringa and Shyira sectors in Nayabihu District to help them get out of poverty and promote farming.
These 49 cows were given to 49 poor families and were worth more than 13Million francs as Eugene Shingiro the agronomist in Nyabihu district explained. Those who were given cows were asked to take good care of them so as to multiply and promote them towards development.
As residents in sectors that neighbours the volcanic park, they were asked to protect this park by not hurting animals and the environment and they were asked to watch each other and stop what would be harmful.
Girinka program in Rwanda started in 2006 and was initiated by the president of the republic H.E Paul Kagame in a way of helping poor Rwandans get out of poverty and change their eating habits. Up to now, many Rwandans own cows and most of them have given calves to their neighbours.

Schools in Kayonza district have been given mattresses meant for students supported by FARG, a fund that supports poor 1994 genocide survivors.
Denyse Kayitesi the coordinator of FARG in Kayonza district said that students were given these mattresses when they needed them badly since some of the students didn’t have mattresses at all and those who had them they were very old and in bad shape.
FARG had last given mattresses to students they support in Kayonza district in 2008 and these had already worn out.
Every year, a school gets new students and others leave therefore they are not worried about one of their students lacking mattresses as they the demanded mattresses asked by schools.
These mattresses will ensure a good night’s sleep and independence as some students shared beds because they didn’t have mattresses especially the new students in these students.
They will help students perform well in their academics as a rested mind ensures concentration and hard work as Kayitesi explained.

In abid to help them fight poverty, FARG is giving out cows to survivors of the 1994 genocide against Tutsi in Ngororero.
Senate president giving one of the cows
During the event to give 16 cows, president of the Rwandan Senate Doctor Jean Damascene Ntawukuriryayo, asked the beneficiaries to give back to the one that gave them through giving heifers to their neighbours.
Ntawukuriryayo emphasized that having a cow means getting milk which in turn means a blessing and wealth. This should bring back hope the beneficiaries lost during genocide.
54 aged Valens Munyangoga from Bwira sector narrated that he last had cows before 1994.
He explained that he had a piglet of his wife’s friend but now Girinka has given him a cow with its young one.
Beneficiaries came from different sectors of Ngororero district because the very poor are considered first in this program.
Kraals were built for the beneficiaries and they were taught how to grow grass for feeding the cattle before they cows were given to them.
