Rwanda | Ruhango Residents

Rwanda Network of People living with HIV/AIDS (RNP+) training residents on violence prevention

 Like other districts that are less developed, different associations use trainings to reach their goals other than residents in Ruhango District development.

Some local leaders in Ruhango district view trainings as a way of making money instead of fulfilling the purpose of the organizations.

During the training, you hear peoples voices asking each other; “how much allowance are we getting today, isn’t the usual Rwf1000 we get?”

This is evidence that participants do not concentrate on what they are being taught but on how much transport they will collect and how to use it.

In addition, some participants do not trust the organizers saying they steal the big part of the money, which is retards the development of the residents and their country.

This was confirmed by local leaders in Ntongwe sector on August 1st 2012 when they turned up for the 2days training that was organized by RRP+.

On the first day, each participant got Rwf1000 which they demanded an increase on 2nd day. The organizers decided to add more Rwf1000 when some participants had left the place in anger and were called back.

However, some did not come back and were heard saying: “They should not play on our minds, do they think we cross five hills to come and get Rwf1000. We will never come back.”

Similarly, residents say some organizers attend to other personal programs making the participants wait for the whole day. What surprises is that they come in the evening to sign for their transport money.

Residents explain their development has become an umbrella for embezzling organizations money. It’s for that matter that residents no longer see value in trainings but a money ground for organizers.

A variety of colourful flowers makes a difference

A variety of colourful flowers makes a difference

A house’s garden is only as good as the soil in which it is planted. If you take good care of the soil, then the flowers and plants that spring from the soil will also be healthy. As such, we need to add proper water and nutrients to the soil to make it look good and also produce good springs from it.

We need to add flowers with bold colors which are always a great component to any home garden. There are many different types of flowers that can be added to a garden’s mix and all of them have their own unique value. However, brightly colored flowers have much special appeal.  They can make any environment that they are in cheerful and lovely .This will make your home very inviting to everyone.

You will need to keep weeds out of your gardens just as you wish the best and the brightest flowers to remain in there. Weeds can harm the plants and the flowers that are in the garden and also undermine the visual value of your garden. That is why it is always critical to always look out for any of the weeds and do eliminate them as the come up.

The next thing that you will look at is the pests which will have to go. Just as weeds are not needed in your garden, so are pests such as insects. They can all wreck havoc on a garden. When you spot them, make sure you take the proper steps to evict them! If a pesticide you bought doesn’t work, you will probably need to call a professional to come and help you with the pests.

Now that all is done, adding fertilizer at regular intervals will be needed as well. This will provide any benefits to the plants and flowers in the garden. As a result, your garden will remain healthy and alive.

Remember if you follow all the above, your garden will be safe, secure, healthy, and appealing. You will have the best of gardens that you have always dreamed of.
